During the search through the streets of Almeria a National Police radio patrol vehicle discovered the missing person. The missing person was found in Instincion Street at 05:40 hours. The man had become completely disorientated and had a distorted perception of reality.

The man was soon returned to his home and his worried family by officers. This meant that he would quickly be able to receive appropriate care.
