He has been seen near the state library downtown and at Pearlridge
Missing man has his family concerned
The family of a man missing for more than two weeks is pleading with the public for help in finding their loved one.
Ronald B.D. Lee, 67, has been missing from his Pacific Palisades home on Aupaka Street since about 4 p.m. Dec. 5. His wife, Linda Lee, said they were home when he decided to leave, and he has not contacted the family since.
He has been seen since, however, in Pearlridge and in front of the Hawaii State Library downtown. This gives the wife some hope, as well as anguish as the holidays loom.
"Christmas without him wouldn't be the same," she said before breaking down in tears yesterday at a press conference in front of the library.
Lee is described as about 5 feet 2 inches tall, about 155 pounds, with brown, graying hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing navy blue walking shorts, white tennis shoes and a blue golf shirt.
He was seen at the Pearlridge Shopping Center Dec. 12 by a family friend. However, the friend did not realize he was missing. He appeared to be unshaven and disoriented.
He was also seen getting on a bus on South King Street in front of the library on Friday.
Linda Lee said her husband has no medical condition, outside of a partial hearing loss.
Family and friends have searched in several locations, including Blaisdell Park, Ala Moana Center, Pearlridge Shopping Center and Keehi Lagoon. The couple have no children, but have many nieces and nephews who are like children to them.
"I don't even know if he has his hearing aid on," Linda Lee said through tears. "All I want is for people to help me find him. ... People of Hawaii, help me."
