Hamilton Police are mobilizing a search team to help find a missing Ancaster senior.
86-year-old Ibrahim Kettina was reported missing by his family.
He was last seen in the Friday afternoon in the Meadowlands area of Ancaster.
His family told police he went out for a walk around 3PM, but never returned home. Kettina has been diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
Mountain Staff Sergeant Chris Zafirides says with temperatures dipping to just under 5 degress overnight, combined with rural areas, finding him is paramount.
Ibriham is described as Middle Eastern, 5-foot-4, 134-pounds, with a thin build.
He has brown eyes and short grey hair. He was last seen wearing faded blue jeans, a black wool zip-up sweater, dark brown leather dress shoes and a white brim hat with a black band with the words “Corona” printed on the side.
His family says Kettina walks daily for two to three hours and is physically fit.
A police command post is being set up on O’Leary Drive in Ancaster, in a park across from the man’s home.
Search crews will comb the areas north of Garner Road and Springbrook Ave., and head east towards Upper James.
Police are urging the public to call the service immediately if Kettina is seen so they can make sure he is safe.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Division 3 Staff Sgt. at 905-546-3886 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
