Police asks for public’s help in finding missing at-risk 48-year-old man with medical conditions

Long Beach police are asking for the public’s help in locating a 48-year-old man who walked away from a care facility today and may be in need of his medication.

David Quiroz was last seen around noon walking away from a facility in the 1000 block of Walnut Avenue in Central Long Beach, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

Police say he left on foot and enjoys visiting local convenience stores. He suffers from medical conditions that may lead him to become disoriented or exhibit childlike behavior with temper tantrums, and he also may appear violent, according to previous reports.

Quiroz is Hispanic, 5 feet, 10 inches tall, 210 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and sweatpants, police said.

Quiroz has gone missing from the facility on multiple occasions, including last month. He has usually been located in the surrounding Long Beach area.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Missing Persons Detail at 562-570-7246 or police dispatch at 562-435-6711. Anonymous tips can be phoned in at Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
