A 64-year-old Cambria man who was reported missing early Sunday morning was found safely a few hours later, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.
David Christopher Trimble was seen leaving his home in the 1100 block of Ardath Drive at about 4 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office said. He was found in a wooded area near the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve at 10:15 a.m., officials said. He was about a mile from his house at the time.
Trimble, a quiet man who worked as a carpenter and woodworker, had brain tumor surgery in April and is considered to be terminally ill. He was considered an at-risk missing person due to his health and his memory issues, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The county search-and-rescue team was involved in the search, the Sheriff’s Office said. A reverse-911 call was also sent to nearby homes to let Trimble’s neighbors know he was missing.
