Cape Coral Police Detectives are currently working a missing elderly male that we believe is heading to Arizona.  

He has high blood pressure, heart problems, and early stages of dementia.  He did not take any of his prescribed medications, and was actively agitated towards family.  Possibly paranoid and delusional.  IMPORTANT-he has in his possession 5 high powered rifles.  He has made no threats to anyone or himself, but the family is unsure why he took the rifles.

A statewide BOLO was sent as he is believed to be out of the county.  FHP was also notified with officer safety notes.  FDLE has been notified and Silver Alert is coming.
