ST PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) -

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's help in looking for a missing 89-year-old man.

Deputies have issued a Silver Alert to help find Edward Taylor of 2424 50th Avenue, Lot #68 in St. Petersburg.

Detectives said Taylor was last seen leaving his home at about 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday.  They say he was going to the Winn Dixie store 4th Street and 62nd Avenue in St. Petersburg.

Officials said Taylor is considered endangered because he may have the onset of dementia and is a diabetic. Detectives also believe he does not have medication with him that he needs.

The PCSO said that Taylor is believed to have been traveling in a 1996 white Lincoln Town Car with Florida tag I31 6IB. They said Taylor is described as a white male, 5'10" tall and 180 pounds. He has green eyes and gray hair. He was last seen wearing light blue pants and a blue shirt.

Anyone with information on Taylor's whereabouts is asked to call their local law enforcement agency.
