A 37-year-old man who had been reported missing from Lake Elsinore was located Thursday in the San Francisco area.
David Howard Acrea was found around 4:30 p.m., according to Riverside County sheriff's Lt. Zachary Hall.
Just hours before that, sheriff's officials put out an alert searching for the man.
"During a recent conversation with a friend, Acrea made some statements that have his family worried he may try to hurt himself," Hall said in the initial alert.
The man had last been seen around 7 p.m. Wednesday at his house in the 41000 block of Burnett Street in Lake Elsinore, Hall said.
