The missing 81-year-old patient who disappeared from Long Island College Hospital (LICH) on Friday, July 19, was found alive and physically well in Fort Pierce, Florida over the weekend. However, it is unknown how exactly he got there from Brooklyn as he never used the ticket

Celso Heredia was found at his Florida home by local police and is described as being in good health.

Heredia’s whereabouts set off a frantic and embarrassing search by hospital employees, then police, who had first found the elderly man walking up the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway on July 15.
