72-year-old Robert Silva was reported missing in Casa de Oro just before 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 24th when he walked away from his home in the 9900 block of San Juan Street in Casa de Oro near Spring Valley. Family members say Silva suffers from Dementia and does not know how to return home, but knows how to use public transportation. Silva also told family members he will be visiting relatives in City Heights.
Later in the afternoon, sheriff's deputies reported Silva had been found safe in City Heights. Sheriff's Search and Rescue (SAR) volunteers found Silva around 3:15 p.m today (July 24th) near 44th Street and University Avenue.
