Missing Portola Valley man found safe

 

A 73-year-old Portola Valley man missing since Monday morning was found confused but uninjured in a Redwood City motel, San Mateo County sheriff's officials said this morning.

Peter Boot was found safe, sheriff's officials said on Twitter shortly after 10:45 a.m. today.

But Boot was without necessary medicine so he was taken to a hospital for an evaluation. He suffers from a medical condition and had been missing since 6:15 a.m. Monday, according to the sheriff's office.

His family is grateful for the community's support and is now requesting privacy, sheriff's spokesman Detective Salvador Zuno said.
