A deputy is recovering this week after experiencing a medical emergency while on duty.
Worrell said she could not release the type of emergency, citing medical confidentiality laws.
Raufaste was located by a second deputy in the area of Bynum Road and Cannery Road in the Bel Air/Forest Hill area, Worrell said.
As of May 11, the 10-year sheriff's office veteran had been released from Shock Trauma, but remained at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
As of May 16, he had been released from that medical campus to another local hospital, where he is "improving," Worrell said.
Worrell added that the sheriff’s office is conducting a fact-finding mission to determine the details of the incident.
Details about how the deputy was located were not available.
