An 84-year-old Italian man with dementia has gone missing in Greenwich during a holiday in the UK.
Carlos Zamboni was last seen in Lee High Road at around 8.30pm last night (June 24).
Police are concerned as Carlos has dementia and a number of medical issues requiring medication, which means he is vulnerable.
He can’t speak English and may try to speak to people in Italian, as well as gravitating towards Italian restaurants or takeaways.
Carlos has been staying in The Plantation SE3 with his family since yesterday (June 23) and is due to return home to Italy on Sunday.
The family realised he was missing at around 7.45pm yesterday.
