TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A search for Joseph Phillip Branch, who has been diagnosed with a cognitive impairment and was last seen in Briarcliff, was discontinued Friday night after he was found.
He is described as a white male, 84 years old, 6-feet tall, 215 pounds, with gray hair and blue eyes. He was last wearing a light-colored baseball hat, possibly wearing a sweater over a black t-shirt and black shorts. He is missing the top of his right ear and has a scar on his nose, the sheriff’s office says.
Branch is thought to be driving a green 2002 Ford Explorer with Texas license plate SSH513. Law enforcement officials believe his disappearance poses a threat to his own health and safety.
