ORIGINAL REPORT:

GLENDALE -- The Glendale Police Department is asking for help to find a missing 84-year-old man who suffers from Alzheimer's disease.

Kenneth McKee was last seen at approximately 2 p.m. Thursday when he left a business near 51st and Glendale avenues. Police say McKee left the business in his rental car to return to his home near 99th Avenue and Union Hills but did not arrive.

There are no signs of a disturbance, but police say McKee has health issues that require care on a daily basis and it is unusual for him not to be in contact with family members.

He recently moved from another state and is unfamiliar with the area.

McKee is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs approximately 158 pounds. He has brown eyes and gray hair. He was last seen wearing beige pants, a white Polo-style shirt and a lightweight beige jacket. He also wears glasses.

The rental car is described as a blue 2009 four-door Chevrolet Impala with plate number ADX0583. Anyone with information is asked to call the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-3000.
