Missing man found safe on his birthday

HOUSTON

Tanis Xavier Figueroa, who turned 25 today, March 21, walked away from a group home on Thursday, March 14. The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office says Figueroa was found safe in Houston by METRO police. He was taken to Ben Taub Hospital for evaluation.

The group home is located in the 9600 block of Wellsworth Dr. in the Keegans Wood Subdivision. Keegans Wood is south of the Westpark Tollway near the intersection of Bissonnet and South Eldridge Parkway.

Figueroa has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and is bi-polar.

The home's manager told Figueroa's mother her son left the home and was going "to a store."

Due to miscommunications between family and group home management, the missing person case was not reported immediately.
