Waco police are asking for the public's help locating a 65-year-old veteran who's been missing since late August.

KWTX reports that Michael Westbrook of Palestine was released from a local VA hospital on August 16. His family reported him missing four days later.

“Mr. Westbrook may not know he has been reported as missing or he possibly may not want to be located," Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said. "In either case, we are wanting to make sure he is OK so we can let his family know that he is safe."

Investigators are asking anyone with information to call the Waco Police Department at (254) 750-7500.
