Jossiah Nguyen admitted to Georgia hospital
POOLER, Ga. (PIX11) — Jossiah Nguyen, the Georgia man who disappeared a second time after his mother brought him home, was found safe and sound on Tuesday evening and admitted to the hospital.
“We are grateful to the many people who helped us find him,” Jossiah’s father, Yen Nguyen, posted on Facebook. “He is currently being transferred to a hospital facility.”
Nguyen’s story has moved many, after he was photographed in ripped jeans on a Brooklyn subway bench, homeless on the streets of New York after leaving his parents’ home in Pooler, Georgia, just before Mothers Day.
When Nguyen was found by MTA cops Thursday near the Long Island Rail Road station on Sutphin Boulevard in Queens, he was evaluated at Jamaica Hospital.
Nguyen’s mother, Bien, dropped everything and flew to Newark airport the next morning, before heading straight to the hospital.
Bien Nguyen was upset that her eldest son had not been transferred directly from New York to an inpatient medical center in Georgia.
Jossiah Nguyen returned home late Saturday evening with his mother and on Sunday afternoon the 25-year-old left, his parents telling the Facebook community that he had not adhered to his medication.
Yet on Tuesday night, Jossiah’s father posted on Facebook, “God answered our prayers in His time when Bien Nguyen and I were feeling down.”
The tired father thanked the Georgian community for their help, including “strangers we didn’t know who shared advice and were eyes in locating Jossiah”.
Yen Nguyen texted PIX11’s Mary Murphy asking her to find her son, writing “Ask for prayers that hospital care does not release Jossiah anytime soon until proper medication and therapy is administered. “.
