An at-risk Lompoc man with dementia went missing on Tuesday evening.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office sent out notices to the public in Lompoc and Vandenberg Village to ask if they’d seen him.

The 77-year-old Lompoc man frequents hiking trails and was last seen in the 200 block of Galaxy Way.

After receiving the alert sent by Sheriff’s Dispatch, father-son team Adam and Aidan McClure decided to take their dog Ember for a walk to see if they could find the missing person along the paths behind Cabrillo High School.

“Sure enough they did!” wrote County Sheriff Public Information Officer Raquel Zick. “Also, shout out to [Santa Barbara County Search and Rescue] and [County Firefighters] for getting the missing person back off the trail and to the ambulance where he is receiving medical attention.”
