Balthazar Getty's

Homeless Search --

MAN FOUND!

11/12/2010 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Balthazar Getty must be ecstatic this morning -- because the missing "mentally challenged" man he was trying to locate was FOUND -- alive -- in San Antonio ... and he's already been reunited with his family.

For the last month, Getty had been on a mission to spread the word about a missing man named Rocky -- the son of one of Getty's good friends.

But after weeks of searching -- and even making a plea for help on TMZ.com -- Getty's friend received a phone call informing him that Rocky was living on the streets of San Antonio.

According to MySanAntonio.com, Getty's friend immediately flew to Texas ... and was reunited with his son on Tuesday. The photo above was taken as Getty's friend (pictured in the red shirt) was reunited with his son (pictured right) on Tuesday.

You see...not all Hollywood glitterati is self absorbed. This one put his money to good use and reunited a family member with his family. Bravo.

Good news. I hope everything gets better, the not knowing must have been awful, best wishes to father and son. They've got a good friend in Getty.

Now Balthazar can personally make sure the dude stops cheeking his meds.

I went downtown San Antonio on my birthday last month and saw Rocky TWICE in one day. One time it was in the River mall and walking down the street. I thought maybe he was a well-known and respected man in the homeless community.

So glad they found him. This shows the plight of the mentally challenged. They're not crazy or deranged, just lost.

But, can't the guy in the red shirt not pop his collar just once?

Truly a blessing from God as we near the holiday seasons that this man was found and found alive and appearing healthy.
God Bless everyone involved in helping and his father who did not give up hope but reached out to others who could help him in his search.

Beautiful Story Tmz and your help in putting this out there to the masses was a big part of what was needed.
