Original story: Police asked the public’s help Tuesday in finding a missing 82-year-old man who left home to visit a family member on Monday but never arrived, authorities said.
Rafael Arvizu Moreno drove away from his Pomona home about 6 p.m. Monday en route to the family member’s home, but hasn’t been seen since, the Pomona Police Department said in a written statement.
Moreno was driving a white, 2015 Toyota Sienna minivan with California license plate 8DDU550. A Silver Alert has been issued.
“Since Moreno has been missing, he has made several fuel purchases in the Southern California area and may be confused as to his own whereabouts,” the police statement said.
He’s described as Latino, 5 feet 10 inches tall, about 190 pounds, officials said. He was last seen wearing a brown flannel shirt, black jeans and brown boots.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Pomona police at 909-622-1241.
