RICHMOND, Va. -- Police said the missing Richmond man who was last seen getting on a bus in the city last week was found safe.

Family members told police they last saw Zokee Muhammad on Monday, July 19, in the Hillside Court neighborhood.

"Muhammad boarded a bus at the intersection of Lone and Harwood streets, but has since been missing," officials said.

He suffers from a medical issue and may be disoriented, according to police.

Officials said in an email Tuesday that thanks to a tip from the public, officers learned Muhammad was in an area hospital being treated.

Police thanked everyone who helped share the story and said Muhammad had been reconnected with his family.
