Police Searching for Missing 86-Year-Old Man

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia Police are searching for an 86-year-old man who hasn't been been seen in over a day.

Relatives of Hugh F. Robinson reported him missing Tuesday night after he didn't come home. Robinson was last seen leaving his home on Sanford Drive at 8 a.m. in the morning.

Relatives told police it's unlike Robinson to leave and not come back. They also say that he'd recently begun to display early signs of a cognitive disorder such as dementia or Alzheimer's Disease, and he has poor night vision.

He does have family in Calhoun County, so they're checking to see if he may be in that area as well.

Robinson is 5 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. He has white hair and blue eyes. He was last seen driving a 2005 gold , 4-door Cadillac Devine with SC tag number CHR 943.
