BROOKLYN - The family of a 59-year-old Brooklyn man who has been missing for days is asking the public to help in their search.

Phillip Lieno was reported missing on Thursday after he didn’t return to his residence at the Brooklyn Adult Care Center on Pitkin Avenue.

Lieno has dementia and is on medication.  His family says he might be nearby and just doesn't know how to get back home. 

Lieno was last seen wearing a purple sweatshirt and green khaki pants. He was last seen leaving the center to go to a store. 

The missing man was allowed to leave the adult center without supervision.
