PUYALLUP — A missing 29-year-old South Hill man was in Jersey City on Friday, according to his family. They say Cody Brown was treated and released at a hospital there Friday morning.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department started investigating Brown’s disappearance after he did not return home as expected from a trip to the South Hill Mall on Thursday.

Brown suffers from epilepsy and cerebral palsy and has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old.

His family says this is a dangerous situation because Cody did not take his medication with him.

Officials said Brown called one of his friends a few days ago and said he was on a bus to Sea-Tac Airport to take a flight to the east coast. Several ATM withdrawls were made using his card at Sea-Tac.

Cody Brown is 5-foot-10, 198-pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes. He walks with a limp and needs medication for seizures.

He is likely in the Jersey City/New York area — possibly traveling with an individual or group. Officials say he is likely being manipulated or coerced.

His family is posting updates on a Facebook page called “Bring Cody Brown Home.”

If you have any information, you’re asked to call 9-1-1 immediately.
