In a follow-up to my earlier post asking for help locating my mentally disabled, epileptic relative, I wanted to let everyone know that he was located on Monday morning in a San Francisco hospital and should be fine.
His brother Jim Lamascus stated, “Bobby Joe Lamascus is safe in the hospital, in serious but stable condition. He’s been in the hospital since Friday afternoon, when he was brought in following an epileptic seizure in a fast food restaurant. One of the hospital workers recognized Bobby Joe after seeing his picture in the news and alerted the authorities. On behalf of the whole family, we’d like to thank the media and the public for all of their help in our search. We’re truly touched by the outpouring of concern and support from the community during this difficult time.”
I spent the day with the reunited family in the hospital; his mother Barbara was tremendously relieved. Hopefully her next Mother’s Day will be a lot less stressful!
