Elderly, At-Risk Hayward Man Missing For Days

HAYWARD (CBS SF) – An elderly, at-risk man has been missing for days after leaving his residential care facility in Hayward, according to police.

Kato Toshio, 85, lives at the Arcadian Residential Community at 24647 Mohr Drive and walked away from the care facility around 5 p.m. Monday, police said.

Toshio is considered to have Alzheimer’s disease and other medical conditions. He has walked away from the facility one other time, but was quickly found, police said.

Police said Wednesday they had followed several leads without locating Toshio. Local police agencies and hospitals have been notified about his disappearance.

The investigation indicates foul play is unlikely, police said, and to help the search, police have released a photo of Toshio.

Arcadian Residential Community and Toshio’s brother have pledged $7,000 for information leading to Toshio’s safe return, police said.

    i am a student journalist. I have been given this story to find out who this man is? My condolenesences goes out to his family, I am so sorry to hear of his death. Who was this man? And how did he come to walk out of this facility? Was Kato Toshio a veteran of our country or of his native country? May Mr. Kato Toshio reast in peace.
