ORIGINAL STORY

LAUGHLIN (KTNV) -- The family of 80-year-old Daniel Caballero continues to search for their loved one who has been missing for almost a week.

Caballero was last seen Aug. 18 at approximately 6 p.m. near the Aquarius hotel-casino on South Casino Drive in Laughlin while vacationing from California.

"It was supposed to be fun just took a twist," said granddaughter Carmelina Merin Caballero.

A twist that has them now passing out and hanging up missing person fliers.

Caballero suffers from Alzheimer's and his family is worried about his health and pleading for the public's help in finding him.

He was last seen wearing brown pants with suspenders and a red/gray shirt with a sombrero. Caballero is 5-feet 2-inches tall, has white hair and brown eyes, and a medium to dark complexion. He weighs approximately 165 pounds.

Police say he might be severe emotional distress and in need of medical assistance.

Red Rock Search and Rescue is looking for the man, who was apparently seen at a Circle K in Bullhead City. Red Rock Search and Rescue said he pulls a red handkerchief out when he pays for items.
