SUN CITY WEST - Family members are begging for the public's help in locating 87-year-old Ben Isom, who's been missing for more than 5 days.
Isom was last seen Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. in Sun City West, Ariz. He was heading to church wearing a beige suit, pale shirt, yellow tie and cream shoes.
But he never showed up.
"No one at church saw him that morning -- so he never made it there. And we suspect somewhere between here and there he made a wrong turn, or maybe kept going," says Isom's son Rick.
Isom suffers from Alzheimer's and usually does not drive. His family has retraced the route to church, but have not come up with anything.
"When a person is weak and vulnerable and out there roaming around there are unfortunate things that can happen to people, under those circumstances," says his wife Penny, who is 81.
He left his home driving a 1995 teal Chrysler New Yorker, Arizona license plate MPE991.
