UPDATE: Man missing from West Seattle care facility has been found, safe

3:17 PM UPDATE: SPD says the man reported missing from a local care facility has been found, safe, and thanks everyone for their help.


Seattle Police tweeted this morning that they are looking for this man and hope you can help:

“MISSING: Mr. Xue-Shun Wang, 57. 5’9″, 150, thin, unknown clothing description. Walked away from West Seattle care facility yesterday. In need of medical treatment. If seen, please call 911.”

(Added) We checked with SPD to find out where in West Seattle he went missing – they tell us it’s Park West in North Admiral (1703 California SW), though he could be anywhere by now.

    I’ve worked in retirement facilities and this happens from time to time. If the person is local, they often go home.

    I would look for him somewhere in the area of where he used to live.

    Why was there no silver alert? It’s freezing cold at night. Also are there no cameras in this place so a clothing description could’ve been helpful?

      Alki Res…Silver alerts are issued for  people 60yo and over. This man is 57. So glad he’s been found. It’s cold out there.

    My 92 year old mother walked away at midnight in her nightgown.  It was 38 degrees.  She did not understand that it was cold.  She was focused on leaving.

    Good morning and thank you for your concern regarding this gentleman. He was quickly identified close to our facility soon after the call was made. We are fortunate to have a robust staff and involved community that cares immensely for the residents in our skilled nursing facility.

    Thank goodness, I’m always so worried this will happen to dad.  It’s too cold right now.  

    Thanks to all who looked, an applause to our SPD.

Sorry, comment time is over.
