Original story:

An 82-year-old at-risk man has gone missing and Elk Grove police Tuesday asked for the public’s help in finding him.

Robert Grappi argued with his wife about 3:30 p.m. Monday in Elk Grove and left for his son’s home in Nevada County, police said.

Grappi, who suffers from medical conditions and possibly dementia and requires regular medications, has not been seen since, according to Elk Grove police Officer Christopher Trim.

However, on Tuesday morning, Grappi’s credit card was used for purchases at two gas stations in Grass Valley, the officer said.

Grappi is white, about 5 feet 9 and 142 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes; when last seen, he wore a black jacket over a white T-shirt and blue sweat pants, police said.

As a rule, Grappi wears a U.S. flag or other patriotic icons on his shirt.

He should be driving a 1998 Toyota RAV4, California license ATSAOK2.

Anyone with information was asked to call Elk Grove Police Department Dispatch 916-691-5246.
