The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is dealing with the latest Silver Alert subject as another elderly man goes missing in as many days. 93 year old Don Pederson’s wife says he drove away from home Friday morning without telling her where he was going. M-C-S-O Officer Chris Hegstrom says
Pederson, who’s recently been diagnosed with mild Alzheimer’s, got up before his wife, brought the newspaper in, got dressed and left the house. Hegstrom says there’s no idea where he may have gone.
Pederson is white, six foot one, 165 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. He drove off in a 2006 Buick Lucerne four door sedan, with Arizona license plate number P-H-F-8-6-P. A Purple Heart is displayed on the license’s front and back and a stuffed dinosaur toy sits on the front dashboard.
Don may be wearing brown pants, a tan jacket and a wide brimmed hat.
