Silver Alert activated for Samuel Contreras: The Chandler Police Department is currently investigating a missing person report. Earlier this evening 85-year-old Samuel Contreras left his group home located at 217 N. Washington St. in Chandler. Samuel has only been at the home for four days and is unfamiliar with the area. Samuel is an Hispanic male wearing a peach colored shirt and beige pants and was wearing a black and gray 'Texas' hat. He is about 5'5" tall, weighs 160 lbs and has black hair and brown eyes. I am awaiting a photo. Samuel suffers from dementia and may be trying to either return to family in Mesa or board a bus bound for Mexico.
Please contact your local law enforcement agency or Chandler PD if you see Mr. Contreras.
