Patchogue man found after going missing from hospital, cops say

Nassau County police on Tuesday said a man reported missing this weekend after being treated for a neck laceration at Nassau University Medical Center has been found.

A police spokesman Tuesday said a Silver Alert also had been issued for Richard Gallo, 28, of Pondview Road, Patchogue, who left the East Meadow facility “on his own accord” at about 11:50 p.m. Saturday.

Police said in a release just before noon Tuesday that Gallo had been found but provided no other information.

The Silver Alert program is designed to inform local media, hospitals and law enforcement agencies when a senior citizen or individual with mental or cognitive disorders is missing.
