VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) -- The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is searching for a man who disappeared from a care facility.

The department tweeted just after 1 p.m. that 36-year-old Berhane Piong went missing from the facility on the 2220 block of Bosna Place in Vista.

Piong has a developmental disability and has the living and decision-making skills of a 12-year-old, authorities say. He will only respond when called by Berhane.

Piong was last seen wearing his favorite camouflage hoodie jacket, black sweatpants and blue sneakers.

Anyone who spots him is asked to call 911.
