Lugoff, SC (WLTX) - Kershaw County deputies are searching for a man who hasn't been seen in several days.

STORY UPDATE: Barry has been located and is home safely with family.

Officers say 47-year-old Barry Bernard Stanley's mother took him to the doctor last Friday. However, when she went to a convenience store for a little while, he walked away from where she was.

A day later, she went to the Travel Inn in Lugoff, where he'd been staying, and learned that he'd checked out that morning.

Officers say he's done this once before: in that case, he returned home after three days, and had walked as far as the downtown Columbia area. His family is especially worried because he has schizophrenia, asthma, and high blood pressure.
