HALIFAX – Landon Webb hasn’t been seen by his family for more than a month, but his family confirmed Wednesday that he’s safe, but on the other side of the country.
Landon, 25, was last seen leaving the Kings Regional Rehabilitation Centre in Waterville, N.S. on the afternoon of October 15.
His family says they have verified that Landon is in Edmonton, Alberta, and will be making arrangements to have him come back to Nova Scotia.
Brenda Webb, Landon’s mother, told Global News her son is safe, but she has no idea how his health is.
Landon has an intellectual disability and functions at the level of a 10 to 12-year-old. He also lives with epilepsy, anxiety disorder, heart disease and asthma.
He has been declared an incompetent person by the courts and needs supervision. Landon had been living at the rehab centre for nearly two years when he left and did not return.
The RCMP said they were concerned for Landon’s safety shortly after he disappeared because he did not have access to the medications he required.
Despite Landon living at a care facility when he went missing, the province’s Minister of Community Services, Joanne Bernard, said she is satisfied with the care her department provided to the 25-year-old and that his case was handled properly.
There is no word yet on when Landon will return to Nova Scotia, or where he will live if he does, since he has been discharged from the rehab centre.
