RCMP and the family of a missing man issued pleas for help for a missing senior in Maple Ridge, B.C., on Sunday.

Seventy-six-year-old Otto Csaszar was reported missing on Friday when he left his home on 207A Street near Dewdney Trunk Road around 10 a.m.

Otto’s son Bence issued a public plea for help outside the Ridge Meadows detachment.

“We are extremely concerned about his safety and well-being,” he said.

“He is well-loved, he has underlying health conditions like asthma. He hasn’t eaten anything since Friday morning, he must be really hungry and thirsty.

“Please help us find him.”
