SAN ANTONIO - The sister of a missing Vietnam veteran says she's desperate to find her brother, two weeks after he disappeared from a Northwest Side senior living community.

Abel Paredes, Jr., 76, was last seen at his apartment complex on April 3. His sister hoped he would turn up at someone else's apartment the next morning, but when he failed to return home the next day, police were called.

Paredes lives at a community known as Madison Estates, near the intersection of Fredericksburg Road and Hamilton Wolfe Road.

Paredes suffers from dementia which requires medication and may be using a walker, although he can walk without one. His sister also said he does not drive, does not have a license, no identification card and no cell phone.

He was last seen wearing khaki pants and a coral shirt. Call SAPD's Missing Persons Unit at 210-207-7660 if you think you've seen him.
