The Clark County Sheriff’s Office was seeking the public’s assistance in locating a missing and endangered Woodland man. On Thursday afternoon, 68-year-old Ismael Magana was found safe and was reunited with his family.
Magana left Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital at approximately 7:25 a.m. Wednesday morning while still receiving medical treatment. Deputies attempted to search the area around Legacy Hospital this evening after his phone was indicating he may be in the area. It is now believed he may have lost his phone shortly after leaving the hospital.
He was reportedly seen at the Shell Station at the La Center/Interstate 5 Junction around 7 p.m. Wednesday evening. He may have been looking for a ride back to his residence in Woodland but has not been seen or heard from since. According to the family, he is diabetic, could be confused, and is primarily Spanish-speaking but can speak English.
Magana is a Hispanic male, 5-feet-11, weighing 190 pounds. He has brown eyes and is balding with shorter, graying hair.
He was last seen wearing a khaki jacket with blue jeans and tennis shoes.
