Police are asking the public’s help in finding a 93-year-old Pasadena man suffering from dementia who vanished during an outing on Monday afternoon.
Hank Redford was last seen about 5:15 p.m. in the 1300 block of East Villa Street at a home associated with him, Pasadena police Lt. Marie Sell said.
He has walked away from a nearby assisted living home earlier in the day, saying he was going to go to the bank, she said. He suffers from dementia and had been living in the facility for about a month.
Police confirmed he was at the bank about 12:30 p.m. and made a withdrawal.
Officers then checked the neighborhood along Villa Street, where neighbors confirmed seeing Redford in the late-afternoon.
A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department bloodhound was brought in to assist with the search.
The dog managed to track Redford for a while, but lost the scent about 6:30 p.m. in the area of Sierra Bonita Avenue and Corson Street, according to the lieutenant.
Redford is white and was last seen wearing a black zippered jacket, a brown polo shirt, black pants and black shoes.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Pasadena police at (626) 744-4241.
