UPDATE: Bob Taylor was located Wednesday morning in the woods near a Clearwater cemetery. He was extremely cold but talking, and was taken to Mease Countryside Hospital.

CLEARWATER—An 82-year-old Clearwater man missing since Tuesday afternoon had still not been located early Wednesday, according to authorities.

Bob Taylor, who suffers from Parkinson's disease and early dementia, was last seen at about 3 p.m. Tuesday at Regency Oaks South, a senior living facility at 2701 Regency Oaks Blvd.

He was reported missing about three hours later.

Taylor, with salt and pepper hair and a mustache, uses a walker or cane to get around, though he is not believed to have either on him.

He also might be barefoot.

Clearwater Police, who searched overnight with a helicopter and two bloodhounds, were especially concerned about Taylor's well being because of the near-freezing temperatures overnight Tuesday.

Police said the search would continue Wednesday.

Contact Clearwater Police at (727)-562-4242 with any information.
