ORIGINAL STORY:

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in locating a 73-year-old man who has not been seen since Monday. He has health issues and needs medication.

Deputies responded to a residence in Bangor Township for an elderly missing report.

John Yore, 73, left on Monday afternoon to make a trip to an unknown place in Indianapolis. He hasn't been heard from since.

Yore is a white male, 6-feet tall, weighs approximately 300 pounds, has gray hair, and a false eye.

He was last seen wearing blue jeans, white t-shirt and baseball cap with Yore Place written on it.

Deputies have been unable to retrieve locations from his cell phone.

Family members say he needs daily medications, which were left behind, and is possibly suffering from early dementia issues.
