Michael Mollo, 37, was found by Pilot Rock police in decent health, according to Ashland police Sgt. Corey Falls.
Pilot Rock police arrested Mollo on an Ashland warrant for a 2005 assault charge. He was taken to the Pilot Rock jail and will be transported back to Jackson County.
Mollo, a guitar player and songwriter who has lived in the area for a dozen years, had been missing since he walked out of the Ashland Community Hospital on July 24.
Mollo, who has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, was receiving medical treatment for a scorpion sting on his right foot that became infected.
He left the hospital against the advice of medical personnel.
His family and law enforcement officials worried the infection could become life-threatening.
