Missing Arlington man returns from his run — a day late

Tylor Sullivan left home Thursday. Searchers found him returning Friday on a trail, cold but unhurt.

ARLINGTON — A search for a missing Arlington man who didn’t return from a run on Thursday ended with a good result Friday afternoon.

The family of Tylor Sullivan went looking for the 19-year-old Thursday and later called 911.

“It is unusual for him to be gone overnight without communicating with someone from his family,” said Kristin Banfield, an Arlington police spokeswoman.

In a Facebook post, Arlington police said Sullivan went for a run and did not return. His usual running routes are in the Crown Ridge and Gleneagle neighborhoods, as well as Zimmerman Trail and the Kent Prairie area.

A search began in earnest Friday morning. It ended around 1:15 p.m. after Snohomish County Search and Rescue and the Arlington Fire Department were called to help find the missing man.

“He was returning home on his own and ran into Search and Rescue on the (Zimmerman) trail,” Banfield said. “He’s cold but otherwise in good condition, no injuries.”

Sullivan was described as having a form of Asperger’s syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism, Banfield said.

“He spent one night out and decided that it wasn’t the life for him,” Banfield said.
