78-year-old Richard Deborde was found safe this evening and has been taken to a Portland hospital for precautionary medical treatment.



On June 3, 2013, 78-year-old Richard Deborde ("de-Bor-day") was reported missing to the Portland Police Bureau, after he failed to return to his foster home, located in the 13400 block of Northeast Halsey Street, during the evening on June 3. Deborde is his own legal guardian, and is free to come and go, at will.

Deborde reportedly suffers from a medical condition which, if left untreated, could cause him to become endangered. Deborde was reportedly last seen at his former apartment building, in the 3200 block of Southeast Holgate Street, during the early morning hours of June 5, but has not been seen or heard from since.

Deborde is believed to be on foot, and is described as a white male, 78 years old, 5'9", 140 pounds, with grey hair and brown eyes. There is no available clothing description.

Anyone with information about Deborde's current whereabouts is asked not to approach him, but to immediately call 9-1-1. Anyone with additional information about this case is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, Missing Persons Unit, at (503) 823-0446.
