Sheriff's deputies were searching Tuesday for a 76-year-old man who failed to return home from an afternoon walk near Pine Hills.
Terry Hughes has light hair and is 6-foot-1, but he walks with a dramatic hunch, that makes him appear about 5-foot-2, sheriff's officials said.
He was believed to be near Three Sisters and Cedar Creek Falls after going for a walk in the area sometime Monday afternoon, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
