    A sad update to a story we told you about a few days ago. Police believe they found the body of Cedric Smith, who disappeared after he was discharged from a New Jersey hospital. The Jamaican-American electrician suffered with seizures ever since a work related accident 18 years ago. His wife Cathy said his head injury made him forgetfull and she had asked nurses at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center to call her before they discharged him on April 21, so she could remind him to take a cab home. But that phone call never came, and Smith was sent home with a voucher to take the bus home.The 58-year-old wandered off two days before he was scheduled to visit Jamaica for the first time in 25 years. Cathy is still awaiting positive identification of his body from the Passaic County Medical Examiner's office.
