DALLAS, Texas — A homeless panhandler who rode in the same Dallas ambulance after Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan has been found after an extensive manhunt.

The 52-year-old man — who city officials identified as Michael Lively — was admitted to Parkland Memorial Hospital Sunday afternoon after being taken into custody by Dallas police officers. County Judge Clay Jenkins said he was taken to the hospital's psychiatric ward.

Parkland spokesman Mike Malaise said Lively was later removed by health officials and taken to an undisclosed location for isolation.
