Update: Man found after going missing overnight
Danny Joseph has been found safe and sound, police say of the man who went missing Wednesday night.
Mounties announced the good news Thursday at around 11 a.m. after a search was done for the First Nations man of diminished mental capacity.
"Daniel Joseph was found at a Duncan business," Cpl. Jon Stuart's email says.
"A caller reported him being there, after the (missing-person) information was broadcast. He is back with his family."
Details about precautions to safeguard him in future were unknown.
Joseph left a Lakes Road event Oct. 16 at around 5 p.m. He was not dressed for the weather.
"At about 5 p.m., the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP received a telephone call from a caregiver, who reported Danny Joseph was missing," Stuart's release says.
Joseph had been seen around 10 p.m. Wednesday in downtown Duncan.
Extensive patrols and inquiries by police had initially failed to locate Joseph.
