TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police are asking for help to find a missing man. They are searching for John Satterfield, 85.

Officers responded to a residence in the 7500 block of East Speedway Boulevard Tuesday evening. While at the residence, the officers spoke with the wife of the missing male. She advised that shortly after completing their dinner at approximately 6:45 p.m., her husband advised that he was leaving to go to their other house.

She confirms that they have no other house in the Tucson area.

He quickly left the residence before she was able to stop him. She waited for approximately two hours, hoping that he would return on his own, before calling to report him as a missing person.

Satterfield is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 6' tall, weighing approximately 200 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. His hair is styled in a "short crew cut."

Mr. Satterfield was last seen wearing a brown short-sleeved shirt and blue jeans. He also wears glasses.

Mrs. Satterfield advises that Mr. Satterfield left their residence in their vehicle, a green 1999 Dodge Caravan bearing Arizona license plate 258JVZ. There is a sticker in the shape of a star on the rear window of the vehicle.

There is concern for Mr. Satterfield's welfare due to the fact that he has been diagnosed as having dementia.

Several locations throughout Tucson have been checked, including Davis Monthan Air Force Base, where he visits on occasion. However, efforts to locate him have been unsuccessful.

It is believed that he may have his wallet with him, allowing him access to money.

Anyone having information about his whereabouts is urged to call 911 so that law enforcement personnel can check his welfare and ensure that he receives any needed medical attention prior to being returned home.
