The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office has issued a silver alert for a 79-year-old man with severe dementia.

They say Bobby Gray went missing from a highway rest stop west of Flagstaff Saturday.

According to officials, he was driving to California with his son and a friend in two separate vehicles.

While they were stopped Gray drove off west on Interstate 40 in a red Dodge Dakota pickup truck with Texas plates.

His family has not seen or heard from him since.

Gray was wearing a button-up shirt, blue jeans and glasses and is 5 feet 11 inches tall, 154 pounds with blue eyes and gray hair.

The truck had a Honda motorcycle in its bed.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (800) 338-7888.
