Paul McAdoo sounds like an interesting guy -- and if you see him, be sure to stop and have a chat. Then call the Menlo Park Police Department, as McAdoo has been missing since mid-October.
The 86-year-old dementia patient has taken off for spells at times in the past; his family told police he's "a drifter" and a fan of public transportation -- which helps explain why he's often found hanging out at BART and bus stations. San Franciscans are advised to keep an eye out for McAdoo at the Transbay Terminal and any BART station. But, truly, McAdoo is a connoisseur of Bay Area public transit. In previous walkabouts, the Menlo Park man has turned up in Daly City, San Francisco, Pittsburg, and other East Bay transit hubs.
McAdoo is a 5-foot-7, 135-pound black man who walks with a cane. Should you see him or know someone who has, The Menlo Park Police request you phone immediately: (650) 330-6300.
