Cole Barrett was found safe after his cellphone and wallet were left inside the delivery truck he was driving

Family members said Wednesday that a 47-year-old Rancho Cucamonga delivery truck driver was found safe in the city of Industry.

Cole Barrett was found a day after he was reported missing while on the job. Brea officers responded about 2:40 p.m. Tuesday to the area of Midbury and Sandalwood after being contacted by Barrett's employer, who said Barrett had not checked in.

Security camera video from a home in the ara showed his unoccupied truck parked with the engine running at about 11 a.m. Barrett's cellphone and wallet were left inside the delivery truck.

Detectives searched house-to-house Tuesday and also searched the hills north of the neighborhood with help from a police helicopter and bloodhound.
