BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (FOX19) - The Boone County Sheriff’s Office has canceled a missing person alert issued Monday for an autistic man with schizophrenia after finding him safe in Indiana.

Before finding him, Matthew Geohegan, 24, of Florence, had last been seen by his parents early Monday morning at their home on Estella Court.

The sheriff’s office said Geohegan had not been taking his medication and was paranoid due to a belief that an alien invasion is going to occur soon. In anticipation, he had reportedly “stockpiled” survival supplies that he’d taken with him.
