HAYWARD -- Police are searching for an elderly Hayward man who disappeared from his home Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say 77-year-old Edward Moore went missing about 4:30 p.m. from his house in the 500 block of Sequoia Road, and that the man has never walked away unattended before. Moore takes medication for both dementia and diabetes, and becomes out of breath from walking for too long.

Authorities believe it is possible Moore may head to East Oakland, where he used to live. The man may have been spotted at the downtown Hayward BART station, but police have been unable to confirm that sighting.

Edward Moore, 77, disappeared from his Hayward home Thursday afternoon and may have gone to East Oakland where he used to live, police said.
