Man Missing After Waking Up From Catatonic State Has Been Found

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A man who had gone missing after waking up from a catatonic state and walking away from his home has been found.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies and volunteer searchers along with tracking dogs began looking for 28-year-old Joshua Carroll Thursday afternoon after he seen leaving his residence on the 2300 block of Edison Avenue.

Carroll had been in a catatonic state since May, possibly as a result of a seizure condition, authorities said.

Carroll was later located at UC Davis Medical Center. He had been taken there by ambulance after collapsing in the 2800 block of Northgate Boulevard which is nearby five miles from his home.

His disappearance is considered strange since Carroll has difficulty walking and would not have been able to communicate.

“He hasn’t been speaking. He hasn’t been high-functional,” said Sacramento Police Sgt. Jason Ramos. “His mom has basically been caring for him, having to feed him, having to move him, having to assist him in moving from location to location.”

Deputies are investigating how Carroll got so far from his home.

    The article stated….. ” Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies and volunteer searchers along with tracking dogs began looking for 28-year-old Joshua Carroll Thursday afternoon after he seen leaving his residence on the 2300 block of Edison Avenue. ” That takes care of where he was living…. Now for the other…..

    ” “His mom has basically been caring for him, having to feed him, having to move him, having to assist him in moving from location to location.”

    You two might actually read an article before making any comments…..
