Missing UC Berkeley Student Found Safe In Oceanside

LOS ANGELES ( — A 20-year-old UC Berkeley sophomore who was missing for a week was found safe Tuesday in Oceanside, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed.

Police said Young Douglas Jr. was in good condition. No other information was released.

Douglas Jr. left his Baldwin Hills home on foot May 9 with no mention of where he was going, according to his family.

His loved ones tracked his debit card and found he used it twice. The card was last used in Fullerton on Mother's Day.

Police told the family Douglas Jr. had contact with a Santa Ana police officer May 12. He asked how to get to San Diego from the Santa Ana train station.

On Monday, the family was told the man's backpack and laptop were found in the San Mateo Campground in San Clemente.

Douglas Jr.'s mother said her son took the last semester off at UC Berkeley because of stress and was worried someone may have taken advantage of his weak mental state.
