Euclid police Captain Mitch Houser told FOX 8 the facility had measures in place to keep residents from wandering off unattended.

“They have a security system for people who have tried to leave or people who are in danger of leaving, by putting a bracelet on their ankle and that’ll trip an alarm as they go out a door, but if for any reason that door is open for someone else, of course the client can walk right out,” he said.

Houser also told FOX 8 the security cameras were not working when Isabell disappeared.

Police say they searched the surrounding area, but saw no sign of Isabell.

FOX 8 contacted Braeview with questions about what happened to Sam Isabell. We were told that the facility was not taking any questions.
