The California Highway Patrol issued a Silver Alert Saturday to aid the search for a 77-year-old man believed to be at-risk who was last seen in West Los Angeles.

Charles Hess was last seen at about 4:30 a.m. Saturday at Nimitz and Bonsall avenues near the Veterans Administration building, according to the CHP.

Hess was described as white, 5-feet-8 inches tall and 140 pounds, with white hair and blue eyes. He was believed to be on foot, wearing a black jacket with fur around the collar, blue jeans, brown shoes and a dark blue baseball cap with white spots.

Anyone who sees Hess should call 911.

A Silver Alert is activated by the CHP when an elderly, developmentally or cognitively impaired person has gone missing and is determined to be at-risk.
