MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Authorities in Minneapolis are asking the public’s help in finding a missing 84-year-old man who suffers from memory issues.

The Minneapolis Police Department says Amatoliy Afanasyev was last seen around 4 p.m. Monday on the 200 block of Oak Grove Street, in the city’s Loring Park neighborhood. He was not dressed for cold weather, and Tuesday’s forecast calls for snow.

Afanasyev does not speak English, officials say, adding that he suffers from memory issues.
