A missing man has been found after a 10-hour search in Shelton.

William Luciano, 47, was located this morning at the Huntington St. Cafe., at 90 Huntington Street,

Staff of the restaurant said Luciano came in for breakfast.

Maria Barden, who works at the cafe, notified police. She said she noticed that something was not right.

"He went to the bathroom for 10 minutes to an hour and then he came out and he had no socks on," Barden said.

Search crews from several towns scoured a one-mile area around Lake Road in Shelton for him after he disappeared from the Shelton Lakes Health Care Center. The cafe is about two and a half miles away from the center.

Emergency crews from Shelton, Derby and Monroe searched on foot, by boat and with the use of K-9s since about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police found him this morning after getting a tip that he was at the cafe.

"As you can see. it's very cold out here. It's not good to be out here in the elements without the proper gear. Don't know what kind of condition he is in otherwise, but the longer he's out here the more worried we get," Asst. Shelton Fire Chief Nick Verdicchio said.

Police said he has a medical condition.

Cafe workers said Luciano appeared to be OK physically. A physician is evaluating him.
