The son of Thanh V. Le reported to police Thursday that nobody has seen his father since February, Officer Michael Wheeler said.
Wheeler said he does not know why Le’s son waited until Thursday to report the 79-year-old as missing.
Wheeler spent Friday checking hospitals, the ambulance service and Le’s bank for traces of the man, but the officer found none. He said the bank has reported no transactions for Le since he was last seen, which was either February 2 or 3.
Le was walking south on Benachi Avenue from the apartment he shared with his son toward Division Street, Wheeler said. Le is 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighs 100 pounds, and has gray hair and brown eyes.
Wheeler wanted to publicize the case in hopes someone has seen Le and will call with information. Wheeler can be reached at 228-702-3054 or anyone with information can call the Criminal Investigations Division at 228-435-6112. After hours, call police dispatch at 228-392-0641.
Any information on Le also can be emailed to the Biloxi Criminal Intelligence Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org.
