Chicago police are asking for the public’s help finding three men, one with Alzheimer’s, who disappeared recently from different parts of the city.
Jose Arevalo, 84, of the 1600 block of West Ontario Street, was last seen last Friday, according to an alert issued by Area Central detectives. He wandered away from his home that day. Arevalo has disappeared before, and has previously been found near 47th Street and Lake Shore Drive. He suffers from Alzheimer's disease.
Arevalo is Hispanic, stands about 5-foot-10 and weighs about 180 pounds. He has grey hair, an olive complexion and brown eyes, police said. When he disappeared, he was wearing a dark, long-sleeved shirt, black leather jacket, blue jeans and dark blue shoes.

He has failed to pick up prescription medications since the time of his disappearance, and failed to pick up glasses that he had been scheduled to pick on Oct. 13, police said.
