A missing 17-year-old boy with schizophrenia was found safe after walking 35 miles to his San Bernardino home from Chino.

Stephen Strother wandered away from his family at 5:30 p.m. Saturday while they were at El Prado Regional Park in Chino.

One hour later, police launched a search in the area.

Relatives and authorities were concerned because the teen requires medication for schizophrenia and he also suffers from a diminished mental capacity.
