The Clermont County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in finding a missing elderly man.

Albert Purcell, 88, was reported missing on Aug. 28 by his sons.

He is being called a 'critical missing person' because he has been diagnosed with Dementia.

Police say Purcell left his home in the 4000 block of Rhodes Drive in Williamsburg Township on Thursday, Aug. 25. He was driving his 2009 blue Chevy Aveo, Ohio license plate EUP-7046.

His sons say Purcell gave no indication as to where he was going. Police say Purcell drives on a regular basis and has a tendency to get lost.

Purcell grew up in the East End of Cincinnati and has resided in the Madeira and Batavia areas.

Any information as to the whereabouts of Purcell may be directed to the Clermont County Sheriff's Office at 513-732-7510 and/or to Investigator Mike Robinson at 513-732-7706.
