Family members discovered that Nam Chung Woo was missing about 12:30 p.m. Saturday and began searching for him, according to a statement from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. Woo’s relatives scoured the neighborhood near his home for approximately four and a half hours before calling the Sheriff’s Department at about 5:10 p.m., authorities said.

Despite an aerial search and a ground search, Woo had not been located as of 11:30 p.m.

Woo suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and requires medications, including some for anger-management, according to authorities.

“He has not taken his medications today and may appear to be acting strangely,” the statement said.
