Authorities asked the public Wednesday to keep an eye out for a non-ambulatory man with dementia who went missing from a Chula Vista assisted-living center in the company of a companion last weekend.

Christopher Dawsknowles, 79, was seen being taken out of the care facility in the 100 block of Third Avenue in a wheelchair — allegedly by an acquaintance, 32-year-old Thomas Pina Gonzalez — on Saturday, according to the Chula Vista Police Department.

“Christopher is unable to physically get around on his own, with or without a wheelchair,” CVPD Sgt. Anthony Molina said. “He is considered at risk due to having dementia and medication requirements.”

Dawsknowles, who was wearing a green hospital gown at the time of his disappearance, is a 5-foot-11-inch, roughly 150-pound white man with green eyes and shoulder-length gray hair.

Anyone who might be able to help locate Dawsknowles or Gonzalez was asked to call Chula Vista police at 619-691-5151.
