Endangered Missing Advisory For 'Mentally Unstable' Michigan Man

July 01, 2019 - 5:10 pm

(WWJ) Michigan State Police have issued an 'Endangered Missing Advisory' for an elderly man last seen last Friday.

Highway signs across the state, including in the metro Detroit area, on Monday read "Endangered Advisory" followed by the vehicle description GMC Sierra with license G8915A.

Officials tell WWJ Newsradio 950 this is in reference to 80-year-old Arthur Herbert Moore, who went missing the morning of June 28 from southwest Michigan's Eau Claire. He is considered mentally unstable. 

According to police, Moore was headed to a scheduled psychiatric therapy session but didn't show up; and his wife Barbara told police she believes he's gone-away to away to attempt to harm himself. 

This is the third time that Moore has been reported missing, according to police.  Four years ago, police said, he drove to the back of his 15-acre property with a rifle and had contemplated suicide. He was missing for approximately 10 hours that time. In January, he went missing again for approximately 16 hours. That time he traveled to the Sisters Lake, Michigan area and parked his vehicle at a public boat launch where he attempted suicide by overdosing on prescription pills. 

Moore is described as a white male, 5'10'' tall and around 235 lbs. with white hair and blue eyes. 

He is believed to be traveling in a 2000 GMC Sierra pickup truck, beige in color, with Michigan plate G8915A. His clothing is unknown.

Anyone who sees this missing person should call local authorities or the Michigan State Police Niles Post #53 at 269-683-4411.
