      After an intensive search was conducted for an 80-year-old man, who suffers from memory loss, from Fort Langley on Friday, he remains missing.

      On the evening of November 1, Lorne Herron was reported missing. He was last seen around 7 p.m. at his new residence in Fort Langley when staff checked in on him.

      He has only lived in the Fort Langley area for about one week after recently relocating from Abbotsford. He may be trying to return to the Abbotsford area.  As he does not have access to a vehicle, he may attempt to seek help from passersby.

      Herron struggles with memory loss and dementia.

      Police are asking anyone living in or with property in the area to check yards or properties, or to review surveillance camera footage, for any evidence of him having been there.

      He is described as a white male who is 188 centimetres (six-feet, two-inches) tall and weighs about 77 kilograms (170 pounds).

      He has grey hair and blue eyes. He is believed to be wearing a grey coat with a light hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

      Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue, Langley RCMP, air services, and police dog services have conducted a search of the area.

      Anyone who locates him or finds evidence of his presence is asked to call your local police; Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200; or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
