TUCSON, AZ (CBS5) -

Tucson police are looking for a 93-year-old man missing since Tuesday evening from an assisted living facility.

Walter Abbott, considered a vulnerable adult, was last seen about 6 p.m. at the Cascades of Tucson Assisted Living Facility, 201 N. Jessica Ave.

Abbott told staff members he was going to the facility's in-house theater to watch a movie and would return by 8:30 p.m., said Tucson police Sgt. Chris Widmer.

When he didn't return, staff members checked the theater and determined that Abbott was never there, Widmer said.

Facility staff said Abbott suffers from early stages of dementia, heart problems and is diabetic.

Abbott is described as white, 6'1" tall, 210 pounds, brown hair, gray eyes and wears eyeglasses. He uses a walker to get around, which he took with him, Widmer said.

The staff was unsure of his clothing, but said he normally wears brown shorts and knee-high socks. Anyone with information is urged to contact 911 immediately.
