    Police are seeking the public's help in locating a man who suffers from dementia and hasn't returned to his Santa Clara home since Tuesday morning.

    Esteban Reynaldo, 83, walked away from his home to a post office at Lafayette Street and Eisenhower Drive around 8 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

    Reynaldo also planned on returning merchandise in the area of El Camino Real and Pomeroy Avenue, about 5 miles away from the post office, according to police. When he didn't return home at about 9 p.m., his family notified police.

    Reynaldo is described as a Filipino man standing about 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 135 pounds with brown eyes and a bald head, according to police. He was last seen wearing a red San Francisco 49ers sweatshirt, blue jeans, brown shoes, a khaki baseball hat and black backpack, police said.

    Reynaldo has dementia and needs to take medicine for high blood pressure, according to police. The 83-year-old doesn't drive but knows the local bus routes and has taken Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority lines in the past, police said.

    Anyone with information on Reynaldo's whereabouts is asked to contact police and refer to case number 16-2347.
