SHORELINE — King County sheriff’s deputies are looking for an elderly Shoreline man who told his family he was going to Snohomish Friday and hasn’t been seen since.
Hilmer D. Jager, 79, was last seen around 8:15 a.m. Friday, King County sheriff’s Sgt. John Urquhart said.
He is believed to be driving a 1996 white Buick Century with Washington disabled plate, “72399DP.”
Jager reportedly suffers from dementia, depression and congestive heart failure, Urquhart said. The man is in dire need of his medications.
On Friday morning, Jager told his family he was going to Snohomish to look for a friend’s house, said Erica Bauman, his daughter.
“He’s never gone missing before,” she said. “This is very uncharacteristic of him.”
Jager is described as white, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 300 pounds with white hair and green eyes. He has white patches on both hands and uses a cane or walker to get around. He was last seen wearing a short-sleeve dress shirt, black pants and black shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311 or 911.
