Great news!! Will post an update. Billy, how did you hear about this so I can include the official source of this information?

Hi Billy, I just got off the phone with Detective Marcus Gathwright, and he said that the man was spotted on the campus, but wasn't there when officers responded to the call. Investigators are still looking for him and are quite concerned because he does have several medical issues. So keep your eyes peeled!
