 Killeen Police are searching for an elderly man who is missing from his residence.

Officers received a call just after 2:00am, from a woman who said her 75 year old husband has been missing from the 200 block of Cloud Street, since 1:00am today.  Upon the officers arrival they learned that the woman spoke to her husband at 1:00am when he told her he was getting ready to go to bed.  When the woman woke up around 2:00am, her husband, Herman Ray Parrish, was nowhere to be found.  She told officers she believed he has been showing signs of Alzheimer’s but has not been diagnosed.  His wife said she believes he walked away from the residence and may not remember how to get back.

Herman Ray Parrish is a 75 year old bald white male; he was last seen wearing a maroon polo shirt and black dress pants.  He has not taken his prescribed medications and he walks without assistance of any device.

The Killeen Police Department is asking anyone if they have seen Mr. Parrish or know of his whereabouts to contact them at 254-501-8800.
