MORENO VALLEY, Calif. - A 62-year-old Moreno Valley man, afflicted with Alzheimer's Disease, drove off in a Honda sedan earlier this month and is still missing, a sheriff's sergeant said.
On Jan. 6, relatives of Ricardo Nava-Alamo told sheriff's deputies he had left his Cottonwood Avenue home in a purple, four-door 1997 Honda Accord.
A search that included a helicopter failed to locate Nava-Alamo, Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Donovan Brooks said.
Information about Nava-Alamo's disappearance was not made public until Sunday.
Nava-Alamo is in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's, and considered to be at risk.
He has grey hair, brown eyes and a grey mustache.
He stands 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs about 180 pounds, and was last seen wearing a blue sweater over a V-neck shirt, Brooks said.
Nava-Alamo also wore a black-striped sweater, blue jeans and white shoes, Brooks said.
The Honda sedan Nava-Alamo drove has a dent on the right front fender.
Its license plate number is 3TUE345.
Deputies asked anyone with information about Nava-Alamo's whereabouts to call the sheriff's Moreno Valley station at (951) 247-8700.
