An elderly man reported missing earlier this month was found Friday.

Leroy Hall, 82, was reported missing after disappearing from the Oroville Medical Center on Jan 4, according to a press release.

He was missing for about three weeks.

Hall was identified by an anonymous employee at a regional care facility. It is assumed he was admitted as a patient during his disappearance, according to Detective Vrooman of the Paradise Police Department.

“The employee saw the press release and then called the police,” Vrooman said. “No details were given of any injuries.”
