PALM HARBOR — A man suffering from Alzheimer's disease who had just arrived here from Canada went missing and authorities asked Sunday for the public's help in finding him.
The man, William Craig Stephen, 67, goes by his middle name. He was last seen wearing white pants, a long-sleeve burgundy shirt, a gray-and-white zipper sweater and a brown leather jacket.
He had just arrived at 312 Highlands Blvd. from Ontario with a friend. He stepped outside for a cigarette at 12:30 a.m. Sunday and the friend went to bed, authorities said. Stephen was gone when the friend awoke.
Pinellas County sheriff's deputies said Stephen was on foot and, since he had just arrived, does not know the area.
Deputies are asking anyone who comes in contact with him to call the Sheriff's Office at (727)582-6200.
