Back in June, the case was picked up by the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office following a tip that McCormack may have been seen near Rough and Ready Highway. The sheriff’s office said they were looking into whether foul play was involved, telling CBS13 they had reason to believe he may be harmed.

On Monday, the sheriff’s office announced that McCormack had been found safe in Sacramento.

It’s still unclear why McCormack went missing.
