Police in Duluth are seeking information about an 85-year-old man who went missing on Thursday.

William Thorene Schultz was last seen at around 9 a.m. in the 600 block of N. 47th Avenue West, wearing a blue-gray plaid shirt and dark wash pants, Duluth police said in a news alert.

He is described as being 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing 178 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes.

According to KAAL, police are concerned for his welfare because Schultz has health problems. The TV station adds that he has "an unusual gait" and is hard of hearing.

He apparently had made comments about visiting the Gunflint Trail area before his disappearance.

Police say that Schultz owns and is believed to have been driving a green Mercury Marquis, license plate 106NVR, when he left his home.

Anyone with information should call 911.
