REDONDO BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- A hit-and-run victim who went missing in Redondo Beach after the accident has been found safe.
Jason Riggio was in the ICU for eight days at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, according to his sister, but reportedly checked himself out against the doctor's recommendation. He went missing last Thursday.
She said her brother suffered brain damage, a broken wrist, cheekbone, broken ribs and lost part of his vision.
According to the Redondo Police Department, Riggio's sister filed a missing person's report after he sent her a text asking her to call him.
Police said when she called, Riggio never answered.
His sister says she was able to get in touch with her brother thanks to the initial story that ran on ABC7, and that Riggio is back recovering in the hospital.
