Previous story: A $5,300 reward is being offered for tips that lead to the homecoming of James White, 64, from Owings Mill, Maryland was last seen around 3:30 a.m. when he left out of the front door of his assisted-living home on the 9200 block of Leigh Choice court on Feb. 26. There is a $5,300 reward for tips that lead to his recovery, reports the Baltimore Sun.
James can speak a few words, but has trouble communicating sentences. He may be accused of shoplifting, because he does not understand he has to pay for items in a store, police said.
White recently moved his 90-year-old mother, Mazola White’s home because of the family’s concern about her ability to care for him.
“I would like to ask the public to, please, if they’ve seen anything or heard anything to please let the police know,” Miles told the Baltimore Sun. “My family is really suffering over this. We just don’t know anything and going day to day is very, very difficult. We’re just losing hope right now.”
White was last seen wearing a black baseball hat with white lettering, a black jacket with leather arms, gray dress pants, and black and white shoes.
