[UPDATED with Man Found:] Donald Turner Missing From Alzheimer Care Facility in Fullerton

UPDATE, SEPT. 21, 9:12 A.M.: 74-year-old Alzheimer's patient Donald Turner has apparently been found safe.

No official word from authorities, but Turner's family says he was found last night. No further details have been released.

ORIGINAL POST, SEPT. 20, 4:58 P.M.: Donald Turner, a 74-year-old Alzheimer's patient, has been missing from his Fullerton care facility since 7:40 last night, and his loved ones fear he may be walking to Irvine where his girlfriend lives.

That's because he's tried to do so before.

The Fullerton Police Department has issued an all-points bulletin to surrounding counties in hopes of finding Turner, who was last seen wearing tan pants and a beige polo type shirt.

He was further described as a Caucasian with blue eyes and gray, collar-length hair. He stands 5-foot-10 and weighs 170 lbs.

Around 7 p.m. on Monday, Turner walked away from his elderly residential care facility at 1037 N. Richman Ave., Fullerton. He has no means of transportation, which is why authorities believe he is still on foot.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Magliano at 714.738.6753 or Fullerton's Watch Commander 714.738.6817.
