Missing Round Lake man evaluated at hospital, arrested, police say

Nicholas Wu, 26, of Round Lake.

The 26-year-old Round Lake man who was reported missing was located, evaluated at a hospital and arrested on a domestic battery charge.

Nicholas ‘Nick’ Wu, 26, left his home around 5 p.m. Sunday in the 24900 block of West Clinton Avenue in unincorporated Round Lake.

Wu left on a skateboard after an argument with family members, according to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Family members were concerned because of Wu’s agitated and at times violent state.

A missing persons alert was issued by police and the man was later located Monday evening after sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in the 35600 block of North Louise Place in Ingleside for a 48-year-old woman who overdosed.

While paramedics and police were tending to the victim, a group of bystanders approached and were watching, Lake County Sheriff Spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli said.

Sheriff’s deputies noticed that one of the bystanders was Wu and he was transported to an area hospital for an evaluation on his well-being.

He was released early Tuesday morning and arrested on a domestic battery arrest warrant stemming from the incident with his family just before he went missing, Covelli said.

Wu previously went missing after making suicidal comments to his family in March.

Wu is being held at the Lake County Jail on $50,000 bond and will appear in court Tuesday.
