The family of a Tyrells man is seeking the assistance of the public to track down the dementia patient who wandered away from home since Wednesday.

Sixty-eight-year-old James Joseph is missing, and his daughter told OBSERVER media that her father would usually walk to a street corner in his neighbourhood. However, on Wednesday he left home at approximately 1 p.m. and had not returned up to yesterday afternoon.

His daughter, Yoland Joseph, describes him as very tall, dark in complexion and very thin.

She said he was last seen wearing grey shorts, a pink and white button-down dress shirt, and white sneakers, with red and white socks.

The elderly man is said to have dementia and frequently wanders away from home, but, would always return.

The relative said the matter was reported to the police on Wednesday.

“My brain is like all over the place,” Joseph said while appealing to the public for help in finding her father.

The missing man is originally from Dominica and came to Antigua in January this year.

Anyone who sees the missing man is urged to call his relatives at 788-3354 or 783-0445. (Tameika Malone)
