A 64 year old Carpinteria man who disappeared August 4th has been found in Los Angeles, and is reported to be okay.

Doug Fischer disappeared from the Carpinteria area two weeks ago.  Authorities were concerned, because they say while he suffers from mild dementia, he was reliable, and would never go without his prescribed medication.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department says Fisher had voluntarily admitted himself to a medical facility in the Los Angeles area, but didn’t teLl anyone where he lived in Carpinteria he was going to do it.
