Missing 70-Year Old Man with Alzheimer's Found at Beach

A 70-year-old Israeli man who went missing from a family member’s La Jolla home has been safely reunited with his family, San Diego Police (SDPD) confirmed.

According to police, around 5 p.m., Shmuel Rezmovitch left the house at 8866 Caminito Primavera in search of olive oil with no money, wallet or cell phone on his person.

He was described to be a Missing Person at Risk because he suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and is unfamiliar with the area. He speaks Hebrew, Yiddish and Russian and will respond to his first name, according to the San Diego police Department.

Rezmovitch was located at a beach in good health and returned to his family Thursday evening.
