A man with special needs who was missing for approximately 24 hours was found safely. Search teams combed an area in north Harris County on the ground, in the air and in the water searching for Donald Pratt. According to his family members, Pratt has special needs and is mentally disabled. They believed Pratt wandered away from his Spring area home.

Pratt was last seen between 12:30 P.M. and 2:00 P.M. Tuesday when he was taking a nap at his home. His parents were taking a nap as well and when they woke up, Pratt was not there.

With both mental and physical handicaps, Pratt reportedly takes medication for seizures and his family was worried because he had missed several doses of his medication while he had disappeared. Pratt was found safely in a wooded area just after noon on Wednesday. According to authorities, he suffered a broken leg.
