Missing Denver man, Mitchel Duran, is found safe a day after checking out of Wheat Ridge hospital

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - A missing 53-year-old Denver man has been found safe Wednesday, a day after he checked out of a Wheat Ridge hospital.

A Wheat Ridge police spokesman said Mitchel Duran had been found and was back home with his family. Details of where he was found were not provided. 

Duran disappeared after he was discharged from Lutheran Medical Center at 4 a.m. Wednesday, police said. He was given a bus pass, and shown where the bus stop was. But police said it wasn't known if he actually boarded the bus.

Authorities were especially concerned because Duran suffers from seizures, has other medical issues, and requires medication. He also walks with a cane, and has impaired verbal skills, police said.
