I happened to turn my scanner on and heard the son of the missing elderly man, Duane Hanna, had found his car parked on East Mountain Dr. and asked for assistance in looking for his father. Information was relayed to dispatch that the father had or was working on a fountain at the address in the 1400 block of East Mountain Dr. (Pulse Point app has the address as 1435 E. Mountain Dr. in Montecito). S.O. located a man in the creek bed adjacent to the property and asked for Fire and AMR to respond. S.O. was trying to get a hold of the owner for the gate code to provide fire and medics with better access. S.O. requested fire bring a stokes basket to get the man out of the creek bed. Medics are on scene, but there has not been any further information over the scanner

That is not much information...
I have taken care of seniors, for years...
What part of Santa Barbara? Does he have Dementia? Lives alone or in Assisted living?
Has a car...where does he frequent?
Sad...the police are very good with this though...called for an elderly man slumped over in his car a few months ago...shopping center...called with the license, area...they came right over...
We should all be on the lookout for this man...hope he is found
