Sometime early Tuesday morning, Charles Gardner walked out of his caregiver's house in Colonial Beach.
The mentally handicapped man hasn't been seen since, and the Westmoreland County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who may have seen him to call them.
Gardner is 54 years old, but his caregiver, Judy Brown, said he has the mental age of a young child. He's also diabetic, has high blood pressure and is prone to seizures. Brown is worried that he has gone so long without his medications.
Wilkins said dogs tracked Gardner no farther than the street, and he may have gotten a ride from someone.
He's a black man about 5 feet 7 inches tall, she said.
He's soft-spoken, and shies from physical contact. He loves fried chicken, spaghetti and sandwiches. He has a scar across the top of his head and another on his right shoulder.
He was wearing black tennis shoes, dark navy-blue jogging pants, a striped button-down shirt and a black jacket, Brown said. He didn't take his gloves or hat, something that makes her worry even more.
Gardner also had on two hospital wristbands, which had his name and a hospital ID number on them. Brown said she left them on just in case something like this happened.
Wilkins said a couple of witnesses believe they saw Gardner on Tuesday morning. He's asking anyone else who thinks they spot him to call the Sheriff's Office at 804/493-8066.
