– Two days after the LA Marathon, a Good Samaritan found 21-year-old Romario Snow in Inglewood, right across from a police station.

Selina Barajas she says she heard about Snow’s story Monday, and hoped he would be found.

She then saw him Tuesday limping near La Brea Boulevard and Queen St., possibly from running 26 miles and she approached him.

He indicated he was looking for his mom, so she flagged down police who connected him to her mother.
Snow’s grandmother spoke exclusively to FOX 11 Tuesday, saying, “[This is] better than Christmas…I was worried about him. Thanks to her [Barjas] we are reunited again.”

Romario has autism and has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old. This is the second time he’s run the marathon.

Also after he crossed the finish line Sunday, he asked a security personnel officer to call his mother to pick him up. When his mother came to pick him up, he disappeared.

Now he’s been found two full days later — about 10-miles away from the race’s finish line.

The family said they’d give Snow a bath and a massage after everything he’s been through.
