Police: Missing Queens man believed to be in Bed-Stuy

Police are seeking the public's help in finding a missing Queens man with Alzheimer's disease whose family believes he is in Bedford-Stuyvesant.



Paulino Rodriguez, 47, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's last year. Earlier this week, his wife Angela says he got of their car while they were headed to an appointment at Queens General Hospital, began walking down a one-way street and vanished.



While Rodriguez lives in Queens with his wife and three children, the family has been posting photos of him in Bed-Stuy, hoping that he might have returned to a supermarket he owned for 15 years.



Anyone with information on Rodriguez's whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
