Missing man found at Fort Worth hospital

FORT WORTH — Detectives found a Fort Worth man who had been missing since late May at an area hospital on Tuesday.

Choudary Bobba, 57, who apparently walked away from his home in the 400 block of Pineview Lane on May 30, was located at John Peter Smith Hospital in good health. Apparently, Bobba had been “hospital hopping,” checking himself into hospitals using a false name, said Lt. Paul Henderson, a police spokesman.

Henderson said Bobba’s family reported him missing after he told his daughter he was going outside for a walk and never returned. Bobba, who has a heart conditon and a documented mental illness, has a history of checking himself into hospitals and, has previously checked himself into Huguley Hospital, police said.
