The family of a local mental health advocate said he has been found after he was reported missing.

Marie Blough said her husband, Paton Blough, was last seen at their home on Friday around 7:30 a.m. She said she returned home after taking her son to school and found that Paton and their Yukon were gone.

Paton's phone was left behind at the house.

She believes he may have gone to a state park. Marie said Saturday is the three-year anniversary of his hike to the top of Table Rock to help pass a mental health crisis intervention team bill.
