Subject of search near I-70 found
Saline County deputies spent about two hours Thursday morning, Aug. 7, looking for a man who had walked away from a van transporting people between mental health facilities.
Sheriff Wally George said the man was located near the 77 mile marker about 12:15 p.m. and would be returned to the custody of mental health facility officials.
George said the man was not considered dangerous, but officials were worried he might come to harm while unsupervised.
A number of law enforcement agencies participated in or were prepared to help with the search, including the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Saline County Medical Reserve Corp.
