INDIO (CBS) — Police searched Saturday for a 79-year-old man who is medically fragile.

Charles Tribble, who suffers from dementia and heart trouble, was last seen around 10 p.m. Friday, when he left his home in the 81000 block of Primrose Way in Indio.

Officials say the man left home without his medication.

He was last seen in his 2006 silver four-door Ford Focus, the Indio Police Department said in a statement.
