East Palo Alto police search for missing elderly man

 

East Palo Alto police are looking for a 79-year-old man who has been missing since the morning of Tuesday, June 24.

Price Joseph Phelps was last seen by neighbors driving a dark blue 2008 Mercury Milan with California license plate 6BAH063, one of his daughters said. Another daughter had dropped him off at his home in East Palo Alto around 9 a.m. after an eye doctor's appointment.

He is about 5 feet 8 inches tall, has white hair and may be suffering from confusion or early dementia, his daughter said.

The California Highway Patrol issued a Silver Alert for Phelps in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties around 12:55 a.m. on June 25.

The family is asking that anyone with information on Phelps' whereabouts call East Palo Alto police at 650-321-1112 or his family at 650-906-1587.
