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.
