DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit police say they have found a missing 37-year-old man with both schizophrenia and bipolar disease.

Ralph Wilks was last seen at around 5:00 p.m. on September 13. Family members say he came home to change his shirt at a house in the 5700 block of Montclair. That's near French Road and I-94.

Wilks had not taken his medication and his physical condition isn't known.

He has tattoos on his neck and both arms. It's not known what he was wearing when he disappeared.
