Alhambra Police Department searching for missing 87 year old man [UPDATED]

UPDATE 

According to the Alhambra Police Department's Facebook page, Van Tran "has been located and returned to his family."

6.13.15

The Alhambra Police Department is searching for a missing 87 year old man. Van Tran's family reported him missing yesterday after he did not return from his regular routine of going to the 168 Market on Valley Boulevard. The family lives on the 1000 block of South Cordova Avenue.

As of Tuesday morning, the man is still missing and detectives are working on finding him, said Sergeant Gerald Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department. Johnson said that the police deployed two search dogs Monday evening, but both dogs lost his scent near New Avenue and Valley Blvd. 

"He could've gotten onto a bus or someone could've turned on a sprinkler system," said Johnson, explaining how two dogs could lose a missing person's scent at the same location. 

Johnson said they have translated their missing person's flier into Chinese, and are reaching out through Weibo to find Tran. The department is also visiting local hospitals to see if he has been admitted as a "John Doe." 

The police department asks the public to call 626-570-5151 if they spot Tran. He was last seen wearing a white and pink hat, khaki pants, and a white dress shirt. The missing man does not speak English but he does speak Cantonese and Mandarin.
