Search continues today for missing elderly man

HOUSTON The man walked out of the front door of his home on Chalet near Firehills around 5pm yesterday. Family members say Valeriano Urrutia, 72, has Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease. They say they are worried if he doesn't get his medication soon, his health will deteriorate.

"Since he has Alzheimer's, you know, he doesn't really recognize his name," said Evelyn Urrutia, the missing man's granddaughter. "He didn't take his medication before he walked off. Unfortunately that makes it even worse."

Family members say he has gotten lost before and will answer to the name "Vale".

If you see him, call police.
