missing-george-edwardsPolice are asking for the public’s help to find a missing elderly man.

Seventy-three year old George Edwards was noticed missing from his care home on West Pender near Homer Street at 6:00 pm this evening. He was last seen at about 12:00 noon.

Mr. Edwards is described as white with a slim build, grey hair and walks slightly hunched over. He was last seen wearing a beige jacket.

George suffers from dementia and schizophrenia.

Area searches around his care home along with checks of local hospitals, transit, and other police jurisdictions have failed to locate the missing man. Police believe there may have been an earlier sighting of him on the seabus, but that has not yet been confirmed.

Anyone who sees George Edwards is asked to call 9-1-1 immediately and keep an eye on him until officers arrive.
