CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Cincinnati police have brought in search and rescue teams to help find a missing endangered man who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Officers say Henry Parker, 87, walked away from his home on Cleinview Avenue at 10:30 p.m. Saturday and never returned.

Parker does not have his required medication with him, police said.

Police say he was last seen wearing a black hat, a purple button-down shirt, gray dress pants, black shoes, and carrying a cane.

”Whenever we know that we have an endangered, elderly individual, it’s important that we bring that person back to their loving family, and knowing, which is more concerning, is that Mr. Parker has a known history of dementia, he may not even know what his name is, or where he currently resides,” explained Cincinnati Police Lt. Jonathan Cunningham.

Anyone with information on Parker’s whereabouts is asked to call 1-888-637-1113 or 911.
