UPDATE: Officials say Mickey, the man last seen after a Jazz game Monday night, has been found.

“We are so grateful that Mickey has been found. He appears to be in good condition,” said Cindie Quintana, Director of Public Relations and Development, TURN Community Services. “We are taking him to a local hospital just to get checked out as a precaution.”
 
Quintana thanked the media, the Salt Lake City Police Department, Murray City Police Department, UTA, and the many volunteers who assisted in the search for Mickey.
 
Quintana said a concerned passenger riding TRAX Tuesday afternoon alerted the TRAX operator that Mickey seemed a bit disoriented.
 
The TRAX operator stopped his train, contacted another UTA bus driver, and asked him to drive Mickey to the nearest police station. Mickey had been riding TRAX back and forth on the blue line multiple times trying to make it back home to Orem. 
 
“The Murray City Police Department gave Mickey muffins, water, and kept him company until staff arrived,” said Quintana. “We are so thankful to these courageous UTA workers, and the anonymous citizen who noticed that there was an individual in need. These wonderful individuals took a break from their busy workday to lend a hand to an exceptional someone with special needs.”
