Louis Wingard Jr.’, a 77-year-old Vietnam veteran, has been missing since Monday when he did not show up to his doctors appointment at McGuire VA Medical Center in Richmond.
Wingard was recently diagnosed with dementia and his family believes he got confused while driving and may be too prideful to ask for help.
“He’s probably out there talking to people,” his step-daughter Keisha said over the phone Tuesday to WTVR. “We’re out there looking for him.”
According to WTVR, Wingard drove a gold 1999 Ford F-150 with a License Plate Tag XSN-4702.
Security cameras captured images of him leaving his home the morning of his appointment.
The images showed him wearing blue jeans and light blue shirt when he left the house.
“If anyone sees him, call the news, call the police,” Keisha said.
Petersburg Police are aware of the situation and are expected to release an update or statement soon
