INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Police in Indianapolis and Franklin County are looking for a 76-year-old who has been missing since Wednesday and is in need of medication.
Richard Abel, 76, was last seen at about 9 p.m. Wednesday, leaving his daughter's house on the east side of Indianapolis. He was thought to be driving to his home in Laurel, in Franklin County, near the Indiana-Ohio border. But hours after he should've arrived but didn't, his family became concerned and called police.
Abel is in need of medication for a chronic heart condition and suffers from possible, though undiagnosed, Alheimer's disease. He is white, with brown eyes, gray hair, 5'8", 160 lbs., and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt.
