MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The search for an elderly Montgomery man with Alzheimer's Disease continued Tuesday.

Willie James McCall was last seen Sunday afternoon by a neighbor. He was walking in a wooded area near his home that backs up to Narrow Lane Road in South Montgomery.

"It was really cold that night, it was a really bad night for us," McCall's granddaughter Maranda  Benson said. "Since he has heart trouble and a pacemaker, it's just really scary."

Benson said a family caretaker woke up from a nap Sunday to find McCall missing. After going door to door, a neighbor said they had spotted him in a wooded area near Narrow Lane Road, wearing a blue long sleeve shirt and blue jeans.

"This is someone we love and care about. We are just really afraid right now, because of the time that's passed, his condition, being out in the elements," Benson explained. "It's just very hard for us and even harder for him."

The family organized a search through the wooded area on Tuesday, attempting to cover every foot between McCall's house and Narrow Lane Road.

Montgomery Police Spokeswoman Lt. Regina Duckett said officers have coordinated multiple efforts to locate McCall, including areas searches and worked with state partners for air, K9 and statewide alert support.

If you have any information regarding McCall, please call the Montgomery Police Department 334-241-2651 or call 911.
