Isle of Wight deputies and Virginia State police are at a home in the 16000 block of Bob White Road in Smithfield trying to persuade the person inside to come out and seek medical treatment. 

Deputies say they received a call at 11:20 a.m. from a citizen who was concerned about the home because the windows were open and there appeared to be disarray inside. 

They say no one appeared to be on the premises, but when deputies arrived, the homeowner was inside and refused to come out. 

There are no criminal charges at this time, and police are not releasing the identity of the person inside.
