Deputies said Gabriel has a medical condition that requires medication, which he does not have with him. Because he left his medication behind, and other indicators of self-harm, deputies were considering him in danger.
He was found safe on Wednesday morning after deputies sent out a tweet asking the public to be on the look out for him.
