Fifty-eight-year-old Melvin Gokool was last seen at the entrance to Granville Island around 9:30 this morning when he became separated from his family.
Mr. Gokool has Alzheimer’s, but it may not appear that he is confused or in distress unless he is engaged in a conversation.
Mr. Gokool is South Asian, 5’6″ tall and weighs 160 pounds. He has a medium complexion and short salt-and-pepper hair that is balding on top. He is clean-shaven and wears glasses. He was last seen wearing a white zip-up vest with a short sleeve, white and blue plaid shirt and white cargo pants that were unzipped at the knees to make shorts.
Anyone who sees Melvin Gokool is asked to call 9-1-1 and stay with him until help arrives.
