Police asking for help to find missing elderly couple in Duluth

'This is very unlike them,' officials say.

Police in Duluth are asking for the public's help in finding a missing elderly couple. 

Ronald Tarnowski, 82, and his wife, 78-year-old Mary Tarnowski, were last seen Saturday around 9 a.m., a news release says

The couple lives in Duluth and only drives to get food at nearby restaurants, "so this is very unlike them," police said, noting Ronald Tarnowski has early stage dementia and Mary Tarnowski has right-sided paralysis and difficulty speaking due to a stroke. 

Police say they may be driving a silver 2005 Chevy Tahoe with Minnesota license plate 852-JXG, so "be on the lookout" for the vehicle. 

Please share this post with your Facebook friends to help locate them.

 They also didn't bring their cellphone with them. 

Anyone who has information about where the Tarnowskis may be is asked to call 911. 

GoMN has reached out to the Duluth Police Department for more information, and we'll update this story when we hear back.
