Washington County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a missing 71-year-old man who may be in danger due to health issues.

Deputies said Hugh Colver, who goes by the name Joseph, was last seen in the Raleigh Hills community around 3 p.m. Monday. They said it is very unusual for Colver to be out of contact with his family for this length of time.

According to WCSO, Colver has memory issues that could cause him confusion and make it difficult for him to communicate or find his way home.

Colver is described as 5'10", 155 pounds, balding with gray hair and beard with green eyes. He was wearing blue jeans and a sweatshirt.

If you see Colver or know of his whereabouts please contact the Washington County Sheriff's Office (503) 629-0111.
