Update, 1:28 p.m. Chula Vista Police say Ennis was found safe. He apparently took a cab to his former home in Santee.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) — Police in the South Bay area searching for a missing man who may have walked away from an assisted living home.

David Ennis, 90, is believed to have walked away from the home on G Street just before 7 a.m. Friday, according to Chula Vista Police. Ennis suffers from dementia and is not familiar with the area, police added. Because of that and the cold weather, Ennis is considered at-risk.

The man is described as Caucasian, six-feet tall, clean shaven, and with balding gray hair. He is known to walk with a cane, hunched-over. He was last seen wearing a dark blue hat, navy blue jacket, and gray sweatpants.

Ennis is not known to frequent any specific locations.
