Update: The Vancouver Police Department announced at 7:17 p.m. on April 15 that Fred Tew was located, and would be medically assessed and reunited with his family.
The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) is asking for the public’s help in locating an elderly man who was last seen in the West End.
Fred Tew, a 93-year-old man from Vancouver, was last seen today (April 15) just before 10 a.m. at a bus stop in front of an Esso gas station at Burrard and Davie streets.
According to the VPD, it remains unknown if he boarded a bus or not. In addition, the VPD stated in a news release that he may be confused due to a recent head injury and the early onset of dementia.
He is described as a white male who is 170 centimetres (five-feet, seven-inches), has blue eyes, and is bald with a bandage on his scalp.
He was last seen wearing a dark blue baseball cap, a light blue leather jacket, a dark grey sweater, blue pants, and blue shoes.
Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911 and to remain with him until police arrive.
