A 57-year-old man who went missing Thursday while visiting San Francisco from Alaska has been found safe in Walnut Creek, police said today.

Perez Reyes had been last seen around 2 p.m. Thursday in the 1100 block of Steiner Street, according to San Francisco police.

He was considered at-risk because he has a limited mental capacity and speaks very little English.

Police said Friday that Perez was in San Francisco from Anchorage with a caregiver who left him with her boyfriend while she went to a funeral.

Both her boyfriend and Perez were gone when she returned.

More interesting would be how and why he ended up in Walnut Creek and how he was found.

I suspect that this is not the end of the story…

Missing from San Francisco & wound up in Walnut Creek?
It must have been a big incoming tide.

And where is the boyfriend?

How did he end up in Walnut Creek? He went for a cruise on the Silver Weenie (BART)

Is the caregiver missing, too?

I hope that wasn’t a paid caregiver. But glad he was found.

Anyone visiting SF is considered at-risk because he/she has a limited mental capacity.

Though I would like to hear the end of the story; i.e. what became of the boyfriend, etc. I’m just glad that he was found. I’m sure many family members and friends let out a huge sigh of relief!

My uncle is missing again as of 4/3. the caregiver who IS NOT his legal guardian never advised the family of him traveling out of Alaska and did not notify the family he was missing until 4/7. If anyone has information on him PLEASE contact me ASAP or the San Francisco Police department. my email : Thank you
