A missing college student has been found safe in Black Hawk County. Black Hawk County Sheriff’s deputies had been looking for 19 year-old Taylor Lee Franco since Sunday.
A bicyclist spotted Franco along a bike trail in the Klima Wildlife Area north of Gilbertville this morning. Franco has been taken to a local hospital. Authorities say Franco showed up at a La Porte City home and told the residents that he lived there before leaving the house barefoot with the homeowners’ bloodhound.
Franco is a student at Hawkeye Community College.
