The Missouri State Highway Patrol has issued an Endangered Silver Advisory for an elderly Jefferson City man last seen walking from the HyVee on West Truman toward the nearby Hawthorn Bank, which is up the hill from the grocery store.
JCPD Lieutenant Dave Williams says 88-year-old Guenter Fairbairn suffers from Alzheimer’s, and left his home on Rock Beacon road at about 6:40 yesterday evening. Williams says family members and friends conducted extensive searches throughout the night and early this morning, then contacted police.
Lt. Williams is asking residents to check their property, vehicles, video systems and their out buildings. JCPD says Fairbairn has walked away from his home in the past and has sought refuge in open buildings and vehicles.
Anyone who sees him or who had information should call 911 or Jefferson City Police at (573) 634-6400. Mr. Fairbairn is listed as endangered through the Highway Patrol.
