A Daly City octogenarian who often strolls to his daughter's house on Edinburgh Street in San Francisco's Excelsior District -- more than two miles away -- hasn't been seen since he took off for a walk on Friday morning.

This is unsettling as Estanislao Roch is not exactly anyone's definition of a hearty man. The 81-year-old suffers from Alzheimer's Disease and requires daily medication. Police are asking the public to call immediately if they see him -- and Roch is a man with a rather distinctive description.

He is listed at standing a mere 5-feet-tall but weighing 180 pounds. He has a noticeable scar across the bridge of his nose. And he carries a cane. 

Daly City's non-emergency line is (650) 991-8119 while the San Francisco Police Department can be reached at (415) 553-0123. 

On Friday, Roch was last seen wearing a gray San Francisco Giants cap, an olive green vest, a brown plaid shirt, blue jogging pants, and black shoes. Finally, he tended to wear an ID bracelet on his right arm.

Police and family efforts to locate the octogenarian have so far been unsuccessful.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
