(UPDATE: November 25, 2019) Waco PD says Fransisco "Pancho" Elpidio-Cantu has been found.


The Waco Police Department is looking for a missing elderly man.

Fransisco Elpidio-Cantu also goes by Pancho, and he is 74 years old. He was last seen at his grandson's address at 3521 Speight Ave.

According to his family, he is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and has only been staying with his grandson for the past month. He was last seen about 9:30 this morning at the address on Speight Ave, and they believe he attempted to walk to a store for cigarettes.

His family said that he is used to walking all the time, but now he may be in an unfamiliar area. He was last seen wearing a plaid long sleeve shirt, blue jean pants, and black shoes. He has a distinctive mole under his right eye and has a “stiff” walk.
