    Highland Park police are asking for the public's help in locating an 80-year-old man with Alzheimer's disease who has been missing since Nov. 25.

    William Bracken of Highland Park, who responds to Bill or Sonny, was last seen in Highland Park on a southbound Woodward Avenue SMART bus, his daughter Geneva Williams said Wednesday.

    He left his home in the 200 block of Pilgrim between 4-5 p.m. Nov. 25 while his wife was grocery shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. Bracken is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds.

    For years, they wondered where he had gone after he went missing from his Highland Park home before Thanksgiving in 2009. Last month, his family finally got an answer: His remains were at the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office.

    Rest in Peace Mr. Bracken.
