UPDATE: Andrew Pearl was located and is safe, an employee for his father, Dr. Samuel Pearl, confirmed Friday, July 29. Pearl, 30, was located by police at La Selva Group, a facility on Forest Avenue that is run by Momentum for Mental Health, according to Palo Alto police dispatches.
A 30-year-old Palo Alto man has been missing for almost a week, Palo Alto police said Sunday.
Andrew Pearl was last seen leaving his Palo Alto residence at Middlefield Road and Forest Avenue on the evening of July 11, according to the police and a missing persons flier. No foul play is involved.
Pearl is 5 feet, 9 inches tall with a heavy build. While he can have curly brown hair, as pictured in a photograph police provided, he recently cut it short, police said. He may be wearing blue jeans, a T-shirt and white sneakers with red stripes.
He may have also been in a hooded sweatshirt, according to the flier, which asks the public to "Please help locate our much loved son, brother and friend."
He is quiet and generally keeps to himself or small groups of people. He is considered an "endangered" person, according to the flier.
Police ask anyone who has seen Pearl to call the department's 24-hour dispatch center at 650-329-2413.
