Family Searches For Missing Man

An 84-year-old man from the East Bay has been missing from for nearly a day.

Albert Marcotte, who has memory issues and possibly suffers from Alzheimer's Disease drove away from his home in Diablo Saturday at 1:30 p.m. and did not return.

He lives on Club House Road in Discovery Bay in southern Contra Costa County.

Marcotte was driving a white Infinity SUV with the license plate 4MVP860. He's six feet tall and 215 pounds with gray hair and was last seen wearing a black leather jacket, blue and white striped shirt, tan shorts and brown loafers.

When his family could not find him, they called police who also could not locate him.

If you see him please call the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office at 925 646-2441.

An 84-year-old woman who was reported missing in Hillsborough Friday afternoon was found early Saturday in a dry creek bed.

Joyce Albera also suffers from Alzheimer's disease and somehow wandered away from her home.

Police sent out a similar alert and a resident living nearby reported seeing her that afternoon.
     
Search teams fanned out from that location and found her shortly before 1 a.m.

Information on her condition was not available.

Lori Preuitt wishes California had a "Silver Alert" for these kind of cases. It would help get the word out.
