BED-STUY -

Police are searching for a 75-year-old Brooklyn man with dementia who went missing Monday.

Douglas “Dougie Fresh” Armstrong was last seen walking out of a barber shop in Bed-Stuy, News 12 is told.

Armstrong’s daughter says his memory has been slowly declining over the past two years, but no matter what, he always remembered how to work as a barber.

Police believe Armstrong was driving his black 1999 Toyota SUV when he went missing. His daughter says police were able to track the vehicle entering and quickly leaving JFK Airport that night.

Armstrong’s family says he has never gone missing like this before.

Those who may have information are encouraged to contact the police.
