He was taken to Southampton Hospital for observation, police said.

Detectives from the Suffolk's Seventh Precinct were at the ballpark Monday afternoon.

Suffolk police had issued a Silver Alert during the weekend for Figliolia after he was last seen standing in his driveway on Southaven Avenue on Wednesday at 7 a.m. The alert said Figliolia might be driving a 1994 Chevrolet sport van.

Silver alerts are issued when elderly individuals and adults with special needs are missing.
