A man with developmental disabilities has been found safe after missing for several hours after being dropped off at a Best Buy in Chandler by his caregiver Sunday morning.
According to the Chandler Police Department, 44-year-old Earl Bracy was dropped off at the Best Buy near the Loop 101 and Frye Road around 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
Police said it's not unusual for Bracy to sit at a Best Buy or similar type of store and watch television all day. Bracy's cognitive functions are similar to those of an eight-year-old child, police say.
When Bracy's caregiver returned to pick him at 5 p.m., Bracy was reportedly nowhere to be found.
Investigators determined that Bracy never entered the store after being dropped off.
According to Chandler Police, he was found several hours later.
