Morgan Hill resident Alfred Guzman disappeared Friday morning and authorities are asking the public to help find him and bring him home.

The elderly Morgan Hill man suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, who disappeared Friday morning, was located this past weekend by emergency medical service personnel near Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose.

Alfred Guzman, 79, was found uninjured, but he appeared disoriented, said Santa Clara County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Jose Cardoza said, adding that he was released to his family after being assisted at the hospital.


The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is searching for a missing elderly man with Alzheimer's disease who has not been seen since he drove away from his Morgan Hill home Friday morning.

Alfred Guzman, 79, has no short or long term memory and has not driven a vehicle since 2007, Sgt. Jose Cardoza said. He takes medication for his condition but did not take it today.

He drove away from his home on the 19600 block of Dougherty Avenue around 8:45 a.m. in a 1994 teal green GMC truck, and has not been seen since. He was not carrying money, identification or a cellphone, Cardoza said.

Guzman is described as 5 feet 4 inches and 150 pounds, with a missing right thumb. He was last seen wearing black jeans and a blue sweatshirt.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call (408) 808-4410.
