LINDENWOLD, N.J. (CBS) – Police in a Camden County town are asking for the public’s help locating a missing elderly man who suffers from Alzheimer’s and diabetes.

Emanuel Eke-Okoro was last seen at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday at his home on Amen Avenue in Lindenwold, New Jersey. The 73-year-old apparently walked away from the house unobserved.

The Lindenwold Police Department was contacted by Eke-Okoro’s family at 9:10 p.m. and conducted a search of the area.

With the assistance of a bloodhound, investigators were able to track Eke-Okoro to the White Horse Pike by Sutton Avenue. However, the dog lost the scent there.

Eke-Okoro is a black male with a dark complexion. He is 5’7” tall, approximately 175 lbs. with black hair. He was last seen wearing an army-green t-shirt, with dark navy or black pants and brown flip-flops. The t-shirt had a logo with an American flag on it.

He was due for his insulin at 7:00 p.m., which is a great medical concern. Eke-Okoro’s family said if his blood sugar drops, he may walk up to strangers begging for food. He speaks broken English with a very heavy accent.

If anyone has any information on Eke-Okoro’s whereabouts, they are urged to contact the Camden County Dispatch at 856-783-4900.
