The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that Colby Richards has been Found Safe.
Media throughout southeast Texas tried to assist law enforcement with the search for Richards after he was reported missing last week. His image was shared far and wide on social media, as prayers went out to his family. Civilian volunteers tried to find him. Everyone was concerned and frustrated that there had been no success since the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office asked for help finding Richards on May 26.
Today, Friday, the MCSO cancelled the alert. They said he was found “walking in the area of Research Forest and Kuykendahl” in The Woodlands.
MCSO said Richards was being evaluated by MCHD medics and a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Mental Health Unit. They say detectives will eventually interview him and determine what happened.
MCPR is glad to see a happy ending to a missing person case. Every family of a missing person prays for that ending, but a tiny few are blessed with it. COL
