 A search was underway Wednesday for a missing 43-year-old stroke survivor who has partial paralysis in both arms and is prone to seizures.

Adrian John Cortez was last seen at his residence on South Eastman Avenue in East Los Angeles at noon Monday, according to the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau, which has circulated his photo.

The stroke left Cortez with diminished mental capacity, high blood pressure and a limp, according to the sheriff’s department.

Cortez was wearing a red zippered jacket, gray thermal shirt, black jeans and slippers when last seen. He is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes and a chin scar that is two to three inches long.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts was asked to call sheriff’s detectives T. Abraham or C. Carns at (323) 890-5500.
