Family, police searching for elderly St. Petersburg man with dementia

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are seeking the public's help locating a man who went missing over the weekend.

Harold Richardson-Morris, 84, was last seen at about 6 p.m. Saturday at his home at 4134 Whiting Drive SE.

Family members told authorities Richardson-Morris, who has dementia, has wandered away before but usually is quickly found in his Coquina Key neighborhood.

One time, however, he was found near Tropicana Field, a little more than four miles away.

Richardson-Morris is a black man who stands 5 foot 7 and weighs 145 pounds. He is bald, unshaven and was last seen wearing pants and a T-shirt, both gray. Family members told police he may be wearing glasses and possibly a beige felt hat or a beige cowboy hat.

He also may be pulling a small, black suitcase, police said, with intentions to visit relatives outside the United States.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (727) 893-7780.
