The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office is looking for an elderly man with Alzheimer's who is missing from his home.
Deputies say the family of 79-year-old Francis Cleaton reported him missing from his home located at 608 Indian Creek Road in Freeman Saturday morning. He was last seen inside the residence hours before at 12:30 a.m.
The Sheriff's office has canvassed all roads in the area and spoke with numerous residents. A bloodhound was also brought in during the search, but Mr. Cleaton has not been located.
Police say Cleaton has walked away from his home before, but was always found very quickly.
Cleaton is a black male, standing at roughly 5-foot-8, 165-pounds with brown eyes and black and grey hair. He is thought to be wearing a navy blue tee shirt and either green or blue khaki pants.
Anyone with information on Cleaton's whereabouts is asked to contact the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office at (434) 848-3133.
