(KSL News) A 19-year-old autistic man from Vernal, missing since Tuesday, has been found in Salt Lake.

A security guard at the Social Security office downtown saw Brandon Johns there a couple of days ago. When Johns returned today, the security guard called police.

Johns' father says his son is in good condition.

When Johns left his home on his bike earlier this week, he told his neighbor he was going to Salt Lake.

The teen made withdrawals on his debit card, which allowed family members to track his location.
