EVERETT — People are continuing to search for an Everett-area man who has been missing since the weekend.

Paul Isamu Yoshihara, 75, is living with Alzheimer’s and typically doesn’t leave home alone, Snohomish County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.

Yoshihara was last seen around 10 p.m. Saturday. He was in his home in the 4500 block of Lowell Snohomish River Road. His wife woke Sunday morning to find him gone.

Searchers wondered if he might visit the couple’s former home in Everett, which has since burned down. The property is in the 2800 block of 128th Street.

Yoshihara is 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds. He has brown eyes and gray hair.

Another man in Everett walked away from his home on Monday night.

Rick Metzger, 65, also is living with Alzheimer’s. He left his home in the 10700 block of Evergreen Way around 4 a.m. Police believe he may visit the Mukilteo beach.

Metzger is 5-foot-10 and about 220 pounds. He has white hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone who sees these men is asked to call 911.
