Man, 80, Sought After Fleeing Assisted Living Home

The Ontario Police Department asked Monday for the public's help locating an 80-year-old man who walked away from an assisted living home and has not been seen since.

On Saturday night at about 7:30 p.m., George Modglin walked away from his residence, an assisted living facility, where has been residing since August.

Modglin is described as a white male adult, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He has short gray hair, blue eyes with reddish-colored rings encircling the outside of his eyes. He also has a gray bushy mustache.

Modglin was last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt, black or blue jeans and white tennis shoes. He was also wearing a black baseball cap with red embroidery on the front and a black jacket with red embroidery over the left chest.

Police and family members are concerned because Modglin suffers from dementia and hypertension. Modglin takes regular medication for his medical condition. His condition is expected to worsen because he has not taken his medication since Saturday, police said.

Modglin does not have any family residing in the immediate area, but recently talked about visiting his younger brother in New Mexico. Modglin is not believed to have the means to travel out of state and may be lost, walking in the Ontario area.

Anyone seeing Modglin is asked to call the Ontario Police Department at 909-395-2001.
