The search continues for an elderly man who left his residential care facility Monday night, according to Hayward police.

Kato Toshio, 85, lives at the Arcadian Residential Community at 24647 Mohr Drive and walked away from the care facility around 5 p.m. Monday, police said. Police said Toshio's family in Union City does not know the man's whereabouts.

Toshio is considered at-risk as he has Alzheimer's disease and other medical conditions. He has walked away from the facility one other time, but was quickly found, police said.

Police said Wednesday they had followed several leads without locating Toshio. Local police agencies and hospitals have been notified about his disappearance.

The investigation indicates foul play is unlikely, police said, and to help the search, police have released a photo of Toshio.

Arcadian Residential Community and Toshio's brother have pledged $7,000 for information leading to Toshio's safe return, police said.

I truly hope the family knows that can do their own detective work, along side of the police.. My father was David LaVau, the man that was missing for 7days, and our family found our Dad on our own....
