Missing Kingston man found alive

Deputy: He’s going to a hospital for mental health evaluation

Scott Anderson, 58, was found alive in his garage Thursday by his daughter after having been missing for over a week.

Deputy Scott Wilson said Anderson was taken to an area hospital for a mental health evaluation.

Anderson had reportedly been self quarantining in a lower floor bedroom after being diagnosed with COVID-19; the family told detectives that Anderson was asymptomatic.

The family reported that Anderson had been missing since about 9:30 a.m. Aug. 16; a search of the home found that Anderson may have crawled out a window leaving behind his cell phone and laptop.

“He left behind no clues of where he was going or what his mental state might have been at the time,” Wilson said.

After a search of the house, canine units tracked Anderson’s scent to Jefferson Beach where the trail went cold. KCSO deployed boats and drones but came up empty.
