The Phoenix Police Department needs the public's help in tracking down a missing old guy.
Chamel Cabrera, 73, could be in a bit of trouble -- he's visiting from Mexico and is unfamiliar with the area. He also has Alzheimer's Disease and high blood pressure and needs daily medication. He only speaks Spanish.
Cabrera was last seen yesterday about 10 p.m. at a family member's house north of 35th Avenue and West Beardsley Road in Phoenix.
Cabrera was last seen wearing a white long-sleeve button-up shirt with brown or black vertical stripes. He had on light tan pants and gray sandals. He is also wearing a necklace with a silver cross.
Cabrera is described as Hispanic, about 5-foot-6, and 150 pounds. He has a shaved head and brown eyes.
Anyone with any info on Cabrera's whereabouts is asked to call the Phoenix P.D.'s Missing Persons Unit at 602-534-6151.
