Text of original news release

The Oxnard Police Department is currently conducting a search for a critical missing 80 year old man who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. At 2:35 a.m., the man was reported missing from a care home in the 1500 block of Martin Luther King Drive. The man is Myron Selwyn. He is described as a white male, 6’3’ 180 lbs, with grey hair, and brown eyes. He is wearing a blue short-sleeved shirt and jeans, but no jacket. It is not known if Selwyn is wearing any shoes.
The Oxnard PD is particularly concerned for the Selwyn’s well being because of his level of dementia, and the fact that he is not properly dressed for the cold weather conditions.
If anyone locates Selwyn, they are asked to call 911 immediately.
