CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) -- A Carlsbad man whose family reported him missing last week says he is safe, thanks to a 10News viewer.

On Thursday, 20-year-old Dillon Dudewicz vanished. His father posted to his Facebook page, to let friends and family members know.

Two days later, a woman recognized Dudewicz from the 10News story while walking on the Oceanside pier.

Paramedics took Dudewicz to Tri-City Medical Center to be treated for dehydration, said Dudewicz' father.

Dudewicz is a student at MiraCosta College.
