Silver Alert issued for missing 85-year-old Tampa man with dementia

TAMPA — An 85-year-old man with dementia went missing Wednesday after leaving his Tampa home for the store, officials said.

Jose Latorre, who deputies said lives at 20003 Tamiami Ave., was last seen driving a silver 2008 Cadillac CTS down Tamiami Avenue around 5 p.m. Wednesday, deputies said.

Latorre meant to go to the store, but left home without his wallet, ID or cash, deputies said.

A Silver Alert has been issued.

This is not the first time Latorre has disappeared. Twice before, he was discovered in other counties: In March, he was found in Citrus County, and in September in Lake County.

Latorre is white, 5 feet 7, 165 pounds, of medium build with gray hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing khaki dress pants and a polo shirt with blue and beige stripes.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen Latorre is asked to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
