Petaluma Police say a 52-year-old man went on one of his regular walks downtown Wednesday and never came back to the care facility where he lives.

Hector Duenas, who is prone to seizures but is not considered suicidal or a threat to others, has been missing since 10 a.m. Wednesday, police say.

"He is authorized to leave the facility on his own, which he does two to three times a week," police said in a press release. "He typically walks to downtown Petaluma in the morning and frequents 7-11. He then typically returns in time for dinner."

Duenas speaks only Spanish and is believed to only have about $20 on him and no cellphone.

Here's how police describe him:

"Duenas is approximately 5'06 inches tall, 150 lbs, with gray hair (balding on top) and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a white shirt, black jacket, black pants, and black shoes."

Anyone who has seen Duenas is asked to call 707-778-4372.
