Police were searching the West Newton area this afternoon for a 70-year-old resident of a rehab center who took off his alarm bracelet and wandered away around noon.
Police describe the resident, Ernest French, as a slim black male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, with close-cropped gray hair and a light discoloration on some of his face. They say he was last seen wearing a yellow jumpsuit and a long sleeve blue dungaree shirt.
French is “alert and oriented” and not a danger to himself or others, according to the facility, Golding Living Center-West Newton, 25 Armory St.
Police ask anyone with information on his whereabouts to call 617-796-2100.
