Man Missing for Weeks Found Safe


A missing Evansville man has been found safe. 

Evansville Police says officers were dispatched to the area of Hesmer and Weaver roads over the weekend after a caller reported a man sitting at the edge of a wooded area.

In a release, the EPD said officers quickly determined it was 44-year-old Jason Patrick Smith.

The man’s mother reported him missing almost a month ago. She described him as mentally challenged.

Smith’s family was notified after he was found and he was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

The EPD thanked everyone who reached out to police and helped locate Smith
