Amador County sheriff’s officials are asking the public’s help finding a 79-year-old Pioneer man who was last seen Monday night at a gas station in Placer County.

Warren Alford Hagyard’s wife contacted the Amador County Sheriff’s Office about 10:30 p.m. Monday to report that her husband was missing. She told deputies that family members had last seen him leaving his son’s residence in Elk Grove about 3 p.m. that day.

After a preliminary investigation failed to find Hagyard, Amador County sheriff’s officials contacted the California Highway Patrol and requested activation of a “Silver Alert” due to Hagyard’s medical conditions.

During a follow-up investigation, detectives found that Hagyard’s credit card was used about 11 p.m. Monday at a gas station in Colfax. Placer County sheriff’s detectives reviewed the surveillance video from the gas station, which showed a man matching the description of Hagyard fueling a blue Honda. They reported that the man did not appear to be in distress. They said the clerk who assisted the man said he appeared somewhat confused but did not ask for any assistance.

Hagyard is described as 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighing 170 pounds with gray hair and blue eyes. He was driving his blue 2006 Honda Civic with California license plate 5UJM962.

Anyone with information regarding Hagyard’s whereabouts is asked to call the Amador County Sheriff’s Office at (209) 223-6500.
