INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. - The family of a missing 80-year-old man from Melbourne is extending their search for him south after a week without any contact. Family members say Robert Harrison suffers from Alzheimer's disease and has been missing since last Sunday.
While much of the search has concentrated in Brevard County, the Indian River County Sheriff's Office is now aware of the case as well.
The family believes since the man lived in Indian River County twenty years ago, he may have headed this way. Family members tell us that he was on foot but may have been picked up by someone.
Robert Harrison is a 5'11" white male who weighs 145 pounds, with gray hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen at 9 p.m. Sunday near Milwaukee Avenue in West Melbourne. He was wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt with a green and white "Western" style shirt on over it.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Brevard Sheriff's Office or 911.
