TUCSON - Tucson Police are looking for a disabled, 50-year-old man who went missing from a daycare program in midtown at about 10 a.m. Monday morning.
Michael Marcozzi was last seen around the 1200 block of North Country Club at about 10 a.m. Monday morning, where he attends a day program on a regular basis, according to a news release from Tucson Police. Staff members noted he was no longer on the property, and when he did not return to the group home located in the 7400 block of East Lakeside Drive at the expected time, residential staff began efforts to locate him, including contacting Tucson Police.
Marcozzi operates at an age level that is significantly less than his age, Tucson Police say, and is severely disabled. He is known to experience bouts of paranoia and may suffer from mental problems that could potentially cause him to be a danger to himself or others. Group home staff say he shies away from other people, and may run from strangers trying to help him.
Marcozzi is described as a white man, 5'5" tall, 200 pounds, with blue eyes and red hair with mixed gray (balding on top). He was last seen wearing a black beanie style cap, a black shirt with the word "Hope" on the front and the word "Volunteer" on the back, sweatpants (possibly gray), and gray tennis shoes, police say.
The Tucson Police Department seeks public assistance with locating Mr. Marcozzi. If you know his whereabouts, please call 911 as soon as possible so that he can be returned to his residence.
