George Vanderweit has been missing since July 5.

Police are looking for a 70-year-old man who was recently discharged from a mental health facility and is considered to be a danger to himself.

George Vanderweit — who had no wallet, cellphone or identification with him — was last seen around 9:20 a.m. July 5 in the area of Runyon and Dequindre roads in Rochester.

Despite conducting various searches in the area starting Friday afternoon, all day Saturday and Sunday in the afternoon and evening, Rochester Police Chief Steve Schettenhelm said, Vanderweit was still missing as of July 8.

Police describe Vanderweit as a 5-foot, 9-inch tall white man who weighs about 178 pounds. He was last seen wearing olive green shorts and a red shirt with “bargains” written on it, and might be riding an older green bicycle, according to police.
