Missing Old Person Alert: 71-Year-Old Wendell Workman

The Mesa Police Department is asking for the public's help in tracking down a 71-year-old man reported missing this morning.

Wendell Lee Workman's son had been taking care of him at his Mesa home in the 500 block of West Del Oro Drive. Today, at 5 a.m., Workman's son went to work, leaving his father alone for a few hours until one of his other sons was expected to show up to care for him.

When the other son arrived, he found that Workman, as well as his vehicle, were gone.

Workman, police say, has not been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease by a doctor, but his sons tell investigators he shows signs of the disease -- they say he often gets lost.

Workman had been talking about visiting his brother in Phoenix, but police checked it out and he wasn't there. His brother told police he hadn't heard from him.

Workman's about 5-foot-8, 150 pounds, with grey hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a black, Western-style shirt, black pants, and cowboy boots.

His car is red Chevy Malibu with license plate number 4HSZ97.

If you've seen Mr. Workman, call the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-4075.
