According to family members, a nurse at the hospital where Warren was taken saw the story and was able to connect him to the family. 

It's unclear where he was found and who found him.

More information is expected to be released on Thursday.

Warren originally went missing on June 15 and his family was concerned because he went outside in his house shoes and didn't call. He usually called four times a day.
