San Jose police are looking for a 69-year-old man with dementia who was last seen on Monday and whose cell phone was discovered at the Alvison Marina National Wildlife Refuge early Tuesday morning.

Sgt. Jason Dwyer said Meng Linggong, who lives with his family on Parkview Green Circle in San Jose, was reported missing about 11:23 p.m., though his family said he had been gone since about 8:30 p.m.

At 2:40 a.m. Tuesday, officers found his phone. And now, a tracking canine has been sent to help find the man, who suffers from dementia. Police said he was last seen  wearing dark pants and a dark shirt.  He is Chinese, weighs 111 pounds, and is 5 feet 7 inches tall.
 
Anyone with information about Linggong should call 911 and reference San Jose police case #12-149-1012.  Cellular phone users may also reach the San Jose Police Departments emergency center by calling 408-277-8911.
