San Diego Sheriff Asks Public to Help Find Missing Man With Alzheimer's

The missing man with Alzheimer's may appear in San Diego's beaches and libraries, said his family.

Nearly a week later, Sheriff's deputies are still searching for a missing man known to frequent San Diego's libraries and beaches.

The Sheriff's Vista Station renewed a call to the public to help find the missing person, considered at risk. Deputies initially asked the public to help locate Cruz last Wednesday.

Edgar Cruz, 69, was reported missing by his family on April 17. He has Alzheimer's and other medical conditions. Cruz does not have access to his medications, according to the Sheriff's Department.

Cruz's family says he may end up walking the beaches of Encinitas, Carlsbad and Oceanside. He also likes to hang out at the libraries in Encinitas, Carlsbad and San Marcos.

He was last seen wearing a green shirt, black pants and a green fishing-style hat.

Contact the Vista Sheriff's Station Detective Brendan Cook at (760)940-4308 or call the Sheriff's Department at (858)565-5200, if you have any information on Cook's whereabouts.
