The Vancouver Police are asking for the public’s help to find a missing elderly man who suffers from Alzheimer’s.
Kwok Wing Wong has not been since he left his home in the 3200 block of East 24th Avenue at 10:30 a.m. this morning. His family and police are growing concerned for his safety.
Mr. Wong is Asian, 79 years old, 5′ 10″ tall and weighs 146 lbs., with gray hair. He was wearing a white jacket with a green Adidas logo, a long-sleeved shirt with white and blue stripes, white and blue track pants and white slip-on shoes. Mr. Wong was also wearing a gold necklace with a jade pendant.
Mr. Wong travels on transit and likes to visit Metrotown Mall and the Renfrew Community Centre. He does not speak English, but may respond to “Wing” or “Tony.”
Area searches by police around his home, as well as checks of public transit, other Metro Vancouver police agencies, taxi companies, and local hospitals have failed to turn up any sign of Mr. Wong.
Anyone who sees Kwok Wing Wong is asked to contact 9-1-1 immediately.
