Columbia police say they have found a man reported missing from a care facility.
Authorities say sometime Saturday night, 62-year-old Leon Harrison left the facility in the 800 block of Duke Avenue in the Eau Claire area.
Police say Harrison suffers some memory impairment and takes medicine to control seizures. Saturday night was the last time he had the medicine.
Monday, Harrison was found about a mile away after police were able to track his cell phone that he had dropped in a wooded area along Sunset Boulevard.
Columbia Police spokesman J.B. Crawford says, “He had a seizure and apparently when the seizure occurred, he had fallen into a ravine – a shallow ravine.”
Crawford says Harrison has a history of walking away from care facilities and wandering until his is found.
He was taken to a hospital and was last reported in good condition.
