###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

Detectives from the Portland Police Bureau's Missing Persons Unit are asking for the public's help in locating 23-year-old William Bennett, who is from Milwaukie, Oregon. Bennett suffers from a serious medical condition, which, if left untreated, would likely jeopardize his immediate health and safety. Persons having contact with Bennett might notice that he will seem to communicate at a much younger level than his stated age.

Bennett walked away from his care provider, at approximately 12:15 pm, this afternoon Monday February 21, 2011, and was last seen in the 600 block of Southeast 139th Avenue, in Portland. Numerous Portland Police officers, along with a state-certified Search & Rescue canine team, searched for Bennett, but did not locate him. Bennett is familiar with both TriMet and MAX.

Bennett is described as a white male, 23 years old, who stands 5'08" tall and weights 220 pounds. He has short, black hair and brown eyes, and currently has a scruffy beard and mustache. He was last seen wearing a red and blue jacket, grey pants, white tennis shoes and a camouflage baseball cap.

Anyone who knows of Bennett's whereabouts is asked to immediately call 9-1-1. Anyone with additional information may contact Detective Mike Weinstein, at (503) 823-0446.
