Vancouver police are asking the public for help locating wheelchair-using senior who was last seen Saturday in the Downtown Eastside.

In a release, the Vancouver Police Department said Garry Molyneux didn’t return to his care facility near West 12th Avenue and Ash Street Saturday night. Police said they are concerned for Molyneux’s safety.

Molyneux was last seen Saturday near the intersection of Main and Hastings streets around 7:30 p.m., police said.

Police said Molyneux is paralyzed from a stroke, adding that he can’t speak and uses a motorized wheelchair. Because of this, police said, he is unable to ask for assistance.

Molyneux requires medication for diabetes and may seem confused or disoriented, police said.

Police described Molyneux as white, with fair skin. He is 5’7″ tall with a medium build, short grey hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing blue jogging pants and a long jacket.

Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911 and stay with him until first responders arrive.

Vancouver police are asking the public for help identifying two people connected to the serious assault of man in a wheelchair earlier this month.

According to police, a 44-year-old Vancouver resident was left with serious injuries after being attacked in the underground parking lot of an apartment building on Cecil Street near Kingsway on July 4.

On Wednesday, police released images of two people captured on a CCTV camera near the scene of the assault. The pair have not been named as suspects, but VPD investigators believe they may have useful information about the incident nevertheless.

“The VPD believes the two individuals in the photos, a man and a woman, may have information about this assault. We are hopeful that the public can assist us in identifying the pair,” said Sgt. Jason Robillard.  

While the images are grainy, the male in the photo is believed to be a white man with a slim build and blonde hair. He was wearing a denim jacket, a shirt with a large “O” on the front, black shorts, black flip flops, and a black baseball hat. The woman, also believed to be Caucasian, has a medium build and orange or blonde hair. She was wearing a black, cropped top, a red jacket, green camouflage-print capri pants, and sandals.

Anyone who may recognize the couple in the photos is asked to call the VPD.
