An 80-year-old man who suffers from unspecified medical conditions that may cause him to become disoriented went missing in Anza, and authorities again sought help Sunday to find him.

The California Highway Patrol, acting on a request from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, issued a “Silver Alert” for Refugio Olivares, who was last seen Thursday about 4:15 p.m. He was wearing a blue shirt, tan pants, black shoes and carrying a black backpack.

Investigators circulated a photo of the octogenarian and asked anybody who sees him to call 911, the Hemet sheriff’s station at 951-791-3400, or sheriff’s dispatch at 951-776-1099.
