Missing Davie Tow Truck Driver Found Safe in Georgia

A Davie tow truck driver who vanished without a trace more than a week ago was found safe in Georgia.

Valentino Malloggi, 38, was located in Brunswick and his family had been notified, Davie police announced Tuesday.

Malloggi was found by a police officer walking down a road, officials said.

Detectives said Malloggi's family was making arrangements to pick him up.  They did not say how the 38-year-old crossed state lines. 

He will be evaluated at a local hospital once he arrives in South Florida. Officials say Malloggi has a history of schizophrenia.

He was reported missing April 16 after his tow truck was found inside a trailer park near the Florida 595 truck stop off Burris Road. It was running with Malloggi’s personal items missing. A GPS inside did not indicate it went anywhere but that location.

Initially, detectives suspected foul play could be involved in his disappearance.
