Missing Uber, Lyft driver found alive in LA hospital

Missing Uber driver Josh Thiede found alive in Los Angeles

Police found the auto of a missing 29-year-old rideshare driver, Joshua Thiede, last seen February 11 but were still searching for the man on Monday.

Thiede, 29, placed a call to 911 the following day, but he was disconnected before a dispatcher answered, according to news station KCBS.

LAPD tweeted Tuesday morning that he had been "found alive", but did not immediately provide additional details.

'At this time, we do not have all the details.

Police transported the man to the hospital, where he was identified as Thiede.

Thiede was located several blocks away from his vehicle. "Pending further information, investigators do not believe this disappearance is criminal in nature", LAPD said in a new release.

Thiede's 2014 Nissan Ultima was found on Monday in Koreatown. It had been found around 12:30 p.m., according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im. The auto had a parking ticket on the windshield.

Stracke said he hadn't noticed anything unusual about the vehicle until he heard the auto alarm going off and looked outside to see around six officers searching it with a bloodhound. (The) bloodhound went in. The bureau's Missing Person Unit is investigating the scene. Authorities then notified Thiede's family that he had been found.

While her son was still missing, she contacted his phone provider for access to his records. He had been in the Los Angeles area since college, she said.

Thiede was driving for ride-share companies to supplement his income while hoping to start his own business, according to his mother, who became concerned when she hadn't heard from him in days.

Yokeena Jamar, a friend of Joshua's, said loved ones believe he disappeared while driving for Lyft. We're not sure why he made that phone call.
