Austin police are searching for a missing elderly man in the area. The case was reported Friday afternoon around 12:43 p.m. in the 12200 block of Arboles Circle. 

Police say a family member realized 75-year-old John Alexander wasn't at home Friday afternoon. Neighbors reportedly saw him around 8:30 a.m. get on a bus. 

Police say they are concerned for his wellbeing because of the inclement weather and his medical conditions.
