Police said his disappearance is out of character and he may seem confused.

Wright is described as white, 5’ 8” tall with a slender build. He has shoulder-length grey hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a dark blue long-sleeved shirt with white spots, black jeans and a grey and white toque.

Police said Wright often visits shops in Yaletown and sometimes walks across the Cambie Bridge toward West Broadway.
