Police are seeking the public’s help locating an elderly man reported missing from Toronto’s east end since Thursday afternoon.

Serei Kang, 73, was last seen at 4:30 p.m. in the area of Morningside Avenue and Sewells Road in Scarborough.

“He’s not familiar with this area. He just moved into the area a couple of months ago,” Sgt. David Crampton said. “We’ve done a check of the area on foot. We’ve checked properties, both front yard and backyards.”

He is described as 5’4″, with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black, wool hat, a black jacket, brown, khaki pants and black shoes.

Police say they are concerned for his safety due to the frigid temperatures outdoors.

“It got down to almost -20C with the windchill last night. These are extreme weather conditions. He’s somewhat dressed for the weather but with these extreme temperatures, we want to play it safe,” Crampton said.
