Missing assisted care home resident found safe

San Francisco Chronicle

Authorities say a missing 64-year-old resident of a closed assisted care facility in Castro Valley has been found safe.

Alameda County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. J.D. Nelson tells The San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/18Q6PoE ) that Edmund Bascom was found Saturday in the San Jose area.

Bascom had walked out of the Valley Springs Manor on Oct. 25 during a state-ordered closure that left 19 residents with no professional care.

The closure of the facility is now that target of a multi-agency investigation after a manager on Oct. 18 told staff they would no longer be paid. Still, 19 residents remained in the home, being cared for by a janitor and a cook.

Those staffers placed multiple 911 calls 911 for assistance, which led to the residents being transferred to hospitals.
