Cape Coral Police Department Needs Your Help Locating a Missing Endangered Person


(April 12, 2014)-  At around 10:30 PM on Friday, April 11, 2014, Cape Coral Police Department responded to 1423 SE 27th Street on a missing person call.

Family members told police that their relative, 65 year-old David Siwarski, left the residence around 6:00 PM on foot and hasn't been seen since.  Family members initially thought nothing of it, as Siwarski is known to frequently take walks for up to two hours.  However, as Siwarski had not returned in over four hours, relatives began to worry.

The family is also concerned because Siwarski is on several medications and suffers from aphasia, a brain condition that impacts mental function.  

Cape Coral Police patrol, K9 and Aviation have been conducting a search for the past several hours, but have, thus far, been unable to locate Siwarski.

FDLE is being contacted for a Silver Alert to be issued at this time.

Siwarski was last seen wearing a camouflage hat, a light blue shirt, and khaki shorts.
