EVERETT — A missing autistic man was found Wednesday after he wandered into Providence Everett Medical Center, some 60 miles north of Auburn where he lives.
Wesley R. James, 64, was in stable condition and was to be released to his caregiver, nursing supervisor Sandy Erpelding said. He lives at an adult care home.
James had left the home late Sunday night or early Monday.
King County officers and volunteers had searched the area around the care home.
A tape from a surveillance camera showed James at the Silver Dollar Tavern in Tukwila around 5 a.m. Monday, Auburn police Cmdr. Bob Karnofski said.
He was spotted at 3 p.m. Tuesday at an Everett store, looking for cigarette butts, Karnofski said, adding he did not know how James traveled to Everett.
Plans include building a natural gas pipeline to support the plant’s operation. The open house will include information on the proposed gas-fired power plant as well as information on the pipeline route, construction techniques, pipeline safety and environmental issues.

Michael John Beckwith, 41, was convicted of first-degree statutory rape in 1984. The victim was a 5-year-old girl whom Beckwith knew. In 1999, Beckwith was convicted of possessing pornography depicting a 12-year-old girl engaged in sexually explicit conduct. That victim was also known to him.
Beckwith is 5 feet 11 inches tall, 190 pounds, and has brown hair and hazel eyes.
He did complete sex offender treatment in prison.
A room full of Mukilteo residents, most opposed to the project, protested the county’s consideration of an option for a lease that would allow the proposal to continue. It would be built between the county airport and Highway 527, the Mukilteo Speedway.
Residents cited increased traffic and storm water, a loss of trees, increased noise and other difficulties if the project proceeds.
The council vote to delay a decision was 4-1, with Councilman Gary Nelson the lone opponent. Nelson said he was ready to abandon the project now.
The man may have consumed the cleaner as part of what he believed was a cleansing ritual, Richards said.
The man told medics he was not trying to hurt himself, said Monroe Fire Department Battalion Chief Leroy Schwartz.
Pine-Sol is a product generally used to clean floors and countertops.
The man was treated and released and is under observation at the prison.
