Search called off for missing Ravensthorpe man 14 Nov. 2011
The search for an 84-year-old Ravensthorpe man missing since last Monday has been called off.
Extensive searches began for Arnold James King last week after carers went to check on him on Thursday and found he was not at his home.
On Friday an air and ground search was conducted but no sign of Mr King was found.
On the weekend police and SES volunteers searched an area about 15km from Ravensthorpe after an unconfirmed sighting of Mr King by a truck driver.
Late on Saturday, a bushwalker found a pair of glasses, believed to be Mr King's, while walking a dog on a track behind the Ravensthorpe hospital.
Mr King was last seen wearing blue work pants and top.
Police are concerned for the welfare of Mr King because of his lack of contact with family and friends.
He is described as fair skinned with a medium build, and white/grey balding hair. He has difficulty walking.
Anyone with information about Mr King's whereabouts is urged to call police on 131 444.
