TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson Police have located 50-year-old Michael Marcozzi.

Sgt. Maria Hawke told KGUN9 that on September 24, police were alerted of a vulnerable adult male who was missing.

Marcozzi was last sent at 10:00 a.m. in the area of the 1200 block of North Country Club.  He attends a day program in that area on a regular basis.  Staff members noted he was no longer on the property, but assumed he walked to a nearby convenience store. 

When Marcozzi did not return to the group home located in the 7400 block of East Lakeside Drive, the residential staff initiated efforts to locate him and contacted police.

Marcozzi operates at an age level significantly less than his actual age and is severely disabled.  He is known to experience bouts of paranoia and may suffer from mental problems that could potentially cause him to be a danger to himself or others.
