WATERLOO, Iowa (KCRG) - A missing Waterloo man has been found alive after nearly four days.

An administrator for a Facebook page organizing efforts posted Friday that Mike Jensen had been found and that family was going to where he is but added “Please don’t ask any questions for now.”

MercyOne in Waterloo said Jensen is in serious condition, adding “The family would like to thank the community for the outpouring of prayers and assistance in helping locate Michael.”

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported a worker from Marion found Jensen in a water-filled roadside ditch near the intersection of Hammond Avenue and San Marnan Dr. in Waterloo.

The 46-year-old former Wartburg professor escaped from Ravenwood Specialty Care in Waterloo on Monday night, family says he climbed out of an unlocked window. Jensen had a brain tumor and now suffers from dementia.

A KCRG-TV9 i9 investigation found that the same care facility was fined for having a patient escape in the past.

Search efforts were hampered Thursday by storms in the area.
