LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A young Louisville man is safe with his family four days after he was reported missing. A Golden Alert was issued for 18-year-old Jordan Humphrey on July 16. He had last been seen the day before at his mother's home in the 2700 block of Reidling Drive off lower Brownsboro Road.

For days, volunteers, police officers, and family members searched for Humphrey with little luck. His family said the 18-year-old has the mental capacity of a 10 to 12-year-old child.

On the night of July 19, someone called police saying they saw Humphrey walking on Brownsboro Road near Jarvis Lane. About 9:25 p.m., an officer reported that Humphrey had been found safe.

Humphrey told us he left his home after an argument with his mother and had been staying with a friend the entire time.

After learning Humphrey had been found, his family members rushed to his side. Jonathan Salvi, Humphrey's uncle, said he was looking for the teenager in Oldham County after receiving a tip when his family called to tell him Humphrey had been found.

In the fall, Humphrey will start his senior year at Moore High School where he competes in the Special Olympics.
