A 45-year-old man who had been missing since Wednesday morning was found Friday night "wandering around the Nisqually Valley under the influence of an unknown substance," according to an e-mail from the Thurston County Sheriff's Office.
Marcos A. Sanchez had not been seen since about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in Lacey. He left his home about 7 a.m. and showed no indication of any problems.
His vehicle was impounded for investigation after it was found Thursday night at a retail parking lot off Marvin Road in Lacey. Detectives went through the pickup Friday after obtaining a search warrant and following up on leads, said Lt. Greg Elwin of the Sheriff’s Office.
