Free blood testing continues to go on for patients of Tulsa dentist, Scott Harrington.

Oklahoma health officials tell FOX23 more than 1,000 patients have now been tested for HIV and Hepatitis B and C.

Meantime, Tulsa police are looking for Harrington after FOX23 found the door to his home wide open on Tuesday morning. It doesn’t look like anything was taken, but police say someone had recently been inside.

There are reports Harrington could be at his home in Carefree, Arizona, about 25 miles north of Scottsdale.    

Tuesday morning, FOX23 went to the home to see if Dr. Harrington had returned to Oklahoma, and found a glass door wide open with the curtains pushed back.

Fearing his home may have been burglarized, we called police to come check it out. After 20 minutes of police searching the home, the garage and an overhead apartment, officers came back outside.

"It looks like someone has been here recently. Some fans were on and you could see where someone had been, but there's no one here now, “says Cpl. Daisy Vallely.

Police say there used to be dogs here, but now they are gone and that it looks as if someone was inside the home very recently. Right now, it’s not clear if Dr. Harrington came back to the house or had someone come and get his animals.

"Every door in this house here has a padlock and it was all secured except for this one, so obviously somebody exited out that door,” says Cpl. Vallely.

FOX23 tried speaking with the neighbors, but they did not want to go on camera. However, they did say they had not seen or heard from the dentist.

"I don't know what's going on with him personally, but no one wants to have their items taken or their home burglarized,” says Cpl. Vallely.

Burglarized. I'm surprised it wasn't burned to the ground.
