Shane Zahn is a 26-year-old Army veteran who suffers from severe symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Zahn had recently been admitted to a hospital in Humble, Texas.
However his family and close friends were distraught to learn that shortly after being admitted to the hospital, Zahn had escaped. After he escaped from the hospital he did not make contact with his family or friends and was deemed missing. His family began the frantic search to find him before it was too late.
Danielle Urshell is Zahn's twin sister and shared with reporters that she had spent all weekend searching for her brother.
T.W.Stephens is the pastor of a local church known as Greater New Direction Church located in Cypress. It was on Tuesday evening that Stephens spotted a stranger that looked like he needed help.
Stephens quickly approached the pained- looking stranger that was sitting outside of a Wal-Mart in Cypress.
The stranger turned out to be Shane Zahn.
"I said 'how you doing,' he said. 'I'm alright, I'm alright,' I said, you don't look alright," Stephens said. "You look like you're in a lot of pain. And he said, 'I am."
At this point Stephens had no idea who Zahn was or any details about his escape. He simply felt deeply that something was wrong.
"I kept seeing that pain in his face, like, 'it's over," Stephens said. "It's a deep look, like, I can't explain it."
Stephens knew he had to help this lost and hurt young man.
"That's what I do," Stephens said. "I'm out on the streets ministering when I'm not in church."
After a brief exchange, Stephens convinced Zahn to come to his church with him and then go to a nearby hospital.
"He prayed with us for a long time," Ursell said. "There was something about this man that Shane could talk to him."
Zahn's family was quickly informed of his whereabouts and met up with the pair.
Zahn's family was absolutely overjoyed to see Zahn and was infinitely grateful for all of Stephen's help.
Zahn's twin sister told Stephens,
"You are an angel," Ursell said. "A God-sent angel."
