Police are searching for a 60-year-old at-risk San Leandro man who went missing on Tuesday morning, according to police.

John Williams was last seen at his care home in the 300 Block of Juana Avenue in San Leandro at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Williams is described as a black man standing 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He has gray and black hair and brown eyes, police said.

Williams was last seen wearing a brown beanie, a black jacket and black pants.

He left his home to cash a check in Oakland, but did not return in time to take his daily medications, police said.

Williams is considered to be at-risk due to his medical condition, police said.

According to police, Williams primarily used AC Transit to get around the area. He moves very slowly and walks with a cane. He also has a distinctive hunched over walk.

Williams was previously reported missing last week and was found by a San Leandro police officer in the 2200 block of Bancroft Avenue in San Leandro.

Anyone who sees Williams is urged to contact their local police department immediately.
