Missing Sackville North man: Police concerned for welfare of pensioner missing from home

Posted - ABC

NSW Police were growing more concerned "by the minute" for the welfare of an elderly man missing in Sackville North, north-west of Sydney.

Alexander Stetz, 72, disappeared from his home on Monday afternoon and may have spent the night in chilly conditions.

Inspector Peter Jenkins from New South Wales Police said Mr Stetz has medical problems, including dementia and a heart condition.

"It does get very cold up here overnight, especially this time of the year and this morning it has been very cold," Inspector Jenkins said.

"That adds to our need to find him."

Neighbour Dorothy Fyfe has lived in the area for 35 years and said the terrain could be quite dangerous.

"It's fairly rugged out the back," she said.

"There's a lot of cliffs. You could easily slip over one of them."

Mr Stetz is described as having a slim to medium build, with grey receding hair.

He was last seen wearing grey tracksuit pants, a brown shirt and red lace-up shoes.

Mr Stetz also wears glasses.

Police have asked anyone with information about Mr Stetz to contact Crime Stoppers.

Police are still searching for Alexander Stetz, 72, who went missing from a property in Sackville Ferry Rd at North Sackville at about 4.30pm on Monday, July 14.

Mr Stetz was wearing a brown button shirt with grey track pants and red lace-up shoes when he was last seen by his long-time carer.

Police said Mr Stetz suffers from dementia, and is unsteady on his feet.

Hawkesbury Police, the NSW Police Dog Squad, together with 30 Hills State Emergency Service volunteers, and the NSW Ambulance helicopter, conducted a search of the surrounding area when Mr Stetz went missing but failed to locate him.

Det Inspector Paul McHugh, crime manager Hawkesbury LAC said Windsor Police are investigating areas Mr Stetz has been known to frequent in the past.

He said “extensive checks” have been carried out through the public transport network, hospitals, government institutions and financial institutions.

The searches are ongoing. Mr Stetz, a Hungarian by birth, has a son living overseas. His niece has just returned to Australia from overseas.

Anyone who may have seen Mr Stetz since July14 should call Crimestoppers 1800 333 000 or Windsor Police 4587 4099
