BROCKTON--A 50-year-old man who suffers from Alzheimer's disease is still being sought by Brockton Police.
Sgt. Chris LaFrance said this afternoon the man, Royal Hanson, is still at large and police are currently on the streets looking for him.
At about 11 a.m. this morning, thousands of residents received an emergency call from the city's automated calling system asking residents who may have seen Hanson to contact police.
Hanson is described as a black male, 6-feet, 2-inches tall, with a thin build, salt and pepper hair, brown hair and eyes.
He was wearing blue jeans, a gray shirt with sleeves partially red, a baseball cap with a red stripe and black sneakers.
Hanson was last seen near 41 Frankton Ave. at about 7 a.m.
LaFrance said police have fanned throughout the city, but have concentrated efforts near Frankton and the North Main Street area.
Residents are asked to look around their yards, in hidden places in apartment and condo complexes, shrubbed and out-of-the-way areas around businesses and in vehicles.
LaFrance said he did not have any further details about how the man went missing or his physical condition.
Anyone who may have seen Hanson, or thinks they might have seen Hanson should call police at 508-941-0200.
