Troopers tell Action News that they were answering a call from a family that was concerned about the mental health of their son.
The man had fled the home in the family's car, but when police caught up with him, he got out and ran into the woods near Old Creek and Little Elk Creek roads at about 6 a.m.
Police had search dogs and a state police helicopter involved in the search.
The 25-year-old man was found around 9:30 a.m.
Residents who live nearby were warned to stay indoors and lock their doors during the search, but police say the emergency situation is over.
No one was injured during the search.
