An 80-year-old Carlsbad man who suffers from dementia went missing Wednesday.
Edward Matson was last seen about 9:15 a.m. at Marron Road and El Camino Real getting off a North County Transit District bus, according to police.
Matson was carrying a briefcase and was dressed in tan shorts, a white flower-print shirt and a boonie hat.
His family believes he may be traveling north, possibly to the San Francisco Bay Area.
Matson, who lives near Rancho Carlsbad Golf Club, is a 5-foot-8-inch, roughly 130-pound white man with thinning gray hair, hazel eyes and a mole on his right temple.
Anyone spotting a man matching Matson’s description was asked to call Carlsbad police at (760) 931-2197.
