(11/26/12) - He's been missing for days, and now search crews are on their third attempt to find a missing Saginaw Township man.
Sixty-seven-year-old Paul Moore walked away from his home early Friday morning. Monday, volunteers were looking high and low to find the man, who suffers from dementia.
Search crews are pouring in from Midland and Genesee counties to help find Moore.
"We're in a uphill battle, but we're hoping we can find him soon," said D/Sgt. Jack Doyle.
Moore walked away from his home in the middle of the night Friday. His wife reported him missing.
"Experts we have here with us say he's probably not too far from home, so we are trying to concentrate on those areas," Doyle said.
Saginaw Township Fire Station 3 on McCarty has been converted to a command center, where dozens of volunteers are checking in for duty. Others are going door to door.
Firefighters Roger Klomp and A.J. Makrianias are searching for any clues that may lead to Mr. Moore's safe return.
"He's been outside since 2-3 o'clock Friday morning. It rained, we had our first snow, temps dropped, so he probably attempted to seek shelter some place," said Saginaw Township firefighter Roger Klomp.
Volunteers are searching high and low in backyards, sheds, even underneath bushes.
"We're trying to cover all the areas and check literally as many places. You'd be surprised when someone is desperate for some heat and protection from the elements where they can get themselves into," Klomp said.
Crews are searching a half mile radius from Moore's home and will expand to a mile. They're also asking for the community's help.
D/Sgt. Jack Doyle 36.12 "People who live in the neighborhood could recheck their house every day. Sometimes we can't get into people's backyards and sheds, but if they can check for us and of course call 911 if you find anything," Doyle said.
Moore was last seen wearing a blue jeans, a long sleeve blue shirt, a windbreaker and brown or black shoes.
Call police if you see anything.
