BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A McFarland man with multiple sclerosis who went missing two days ago has been found.
Cesar Garcia was arrested by California Highway Patrol officers Tuesday after they said they found him walking on the freeway and that he smelled of alcohol. The CHP said they offered Garcia several rides to somewhere safe but he refused and walked away. The CHP then tried to arrest him but they said he resisted.
Garcia was then taken to jail in central Bakersfield.
Garcia was released from jail before his family could arrive to pick him up and went missing.
His family contacted authorities and a search was conducted to help find him.
On Thursday, a local attorney advising the family said that he has been found and he is safe. He also said that Garcia's condition often makes him appear intoxicated.
The CHP said they are recommending charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest for Garcia.
