Authorities Search for Missing El Cajon Man

Authorities are searching for a 20-year-old man with diabetes after his family reported him missing.

Elijah "Bear" Diaz was last seen Saturday, Aug. 29 near his home in El Cajon, east of San Diego. 

Diaz is a diabetic and is most likely on crutches because of a serious foot injury, his family told police. They are concerned because Diaz does not have proper medication with him and he has missed several doctor appointments.

He was last seen wearing white bareball shorts and a gray sleeveless shirt. Diaz is approximately 5 feet 10 inches and weighs 110 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes. 

The San Diego Sheriff's Department confirmed they are investigating as well as local police. 

Anyone with tips regarding Bear, please contact the El Cajon Police Department at (619) 579-3311.
