Deputies are looking for an 89-year-old WWII veteran from Puyallup who was last seen 4 p.m. Tuesday.

That’s when the former fighter pilot, Roy J. Alldritt, drove his roommate to the Pacific Medical Center in Seattle.

She came out of the building about 15 minutes later and found that Alldritt and his white 1996 Toyota pickup were gone.

He hasn’t been home and doesn’t seem to have contacted friends or family since.

His roommate said Alldritt suffers from dementia and Alzheimer’s, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.

He is white, 5 feet, 10 inches and 165 pounds. He has white hair and hazel eyes, and was last seen wearing a black Air Force baseball hat and a black jacket with a Porsche logo on the front.

The truck he drives has a canopy and a boat rack, and license plate number A64677Z.

He’s traveling with a small black dog, deputies said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.

  1. Why is this guy allowed to drive? My father n law who lives in Ohio is in the early stages of dementia and he’s already lost his license.

  2. The veterans as group are nice to be around
    if you spend enough time with them.
    I hope this old timer gets found or finds
    his way home.
