Posted November 3, 2011
Raleigh, N.C. — A Raleigh man who was the subject of a Silver Alert Thursday after wandering away from a treatment center has been found, police said.
Adam Root, 29, was found near New Bern Avenue by his physical therapist just after 8 p.m., his wife, Amy Root, told WRAL News.
"There is power in prayer. That is how Adam is still here now," Amy Root said.
Amy Root said her husband had scrapes on his leg where he might have fallen. Adam Root could not clearly communicate what happened to him, so she was taking him to UNC Hospitals as a precaution.
Amy Root believes her husband was disoriented when he wandered away from Learning Services, 5301 Robbins Drive, where he receives treatment for a traumatic brain injury suffered during a motocross accident in May 2010.
The couple have an 11-year-old daughter.
