SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – A man reported missing after disappearing from his Mission Valley apartment was found unharmed, his father told ABC 10News Thursday.

Jim Mills said San Diego Police informed him that his 26-year-old son, Jared Stuart Mills, was “alive and unharmed.”

In a statement to ABC 10News, Jim Mills said:

“Good news, our son Jared Mills has confirmed he is safe and not missing!!! We are relieved and thankful!!! Our first and foremost hope was that he would be found alive and unharmed. He contacted us and talked with law enforcement after seeing the search - thanks to the many people who so willingly jumped in to help! We don’t have any additional details at this time, due in part to adult privacy laws. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for the many people who took time to assist. Thank you!!!”

San Diego Police did not release updated information on the case.

Jared Mills, who moved to San Diego about a year ago, had not been heard from or seen since Feb. 8.

Jim Mills said a neighbor’s doorbell camera captured his son leaving his apartment off Hotel Circle South at around 5 p.m. that day. A text message to his mother about two hours later was the family’s last communication with Jared.

Concerned with Jared’s disappearance, the family filed a report with San Diego Police.
