UPDATE: "At risk" man found safe


An Adams County man considered "at risk" has been found safe.

That's according to an alert sent out by the Sheriff's Department officials.

Baleriano Media, 78, was last seen Sunday near his home in Friendship.


FRIENDSHIP (WAOW) – A 78-year-old Friendship man missing with possible health issues had not been found nor had he contacted authorities Tuesday, the Adams County Sheriff's Department said.

Baleriano Medina was last seen by law enforcement in Sparta after leaving his Friendship home about 6 p.m. Sunday in his car, Lt. Seth Tully said.

He is considered "at risk" because of health problems, including diabetes, and authorities have been unable to verify that he has needed medication with him, Tully said.

Medina, who is driving a gray, 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche, was stopped by the State Patrol near Sparta and given a warning ticket after he left his home, Tully said.

"He made some mention of going to some religious location over to the west," Tully said.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office is searching for a person they consider "at risk."

Officials say 78-year-old Baleriano Medina went missing from Adams County. He was last seen at his home near Friendship around 6:00 p.m. Sunday night.

Officials say Medina did have contact with law enforcement in Sparta around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night.

Medina is 5'7", about 300 pounds and has brown eyes.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the Adams County Sheriff's Office.
