Peel police say they are looking for a 91 year-old Mississauga man who has been missing since Monday.

Investigators said in a statement that they’re seeking assistance from the public in locating Ettore Falcioni who was last seen around 11 a.m. at a plaza by Erindale Station Road and Dundas Street West in Mississauga.

Police said he was driving a 2015 Blue Honda Civic with the Ontario licence plate ALLJ 341.

Falcioni is described as being 5’9”, 190 pounds, and has blue eyes and grey short hair. Police said he was last seen wearing a black windbreaker jacket with red or orange coloured trim with the words “Bramalea Wrestling” written on it.

His son, retired Peel police officer Dennis Falcioni, said his father took his mother to the dentist Monday morning but never came back to pick her up.

“We unfortunately don’t know how far he would have driven before he even acknowledged within himself that perhaps he is lost,” Dennis said.

Ettore speaks Italian and minimal English and currently suffers from a medical condition that may occasionally cause him to become disoriented.

“He’s not been diagnosed with Alzheimers or anything of that nature although we have in recent months noticed a little bit of memory loss,” said Dennis.

“He’s rarely driven on his own for a long time without my mother present, so to a certain extent she may have been acting as a GPS for him a little more than we ever realized.”

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Ettore is asked to call investigators at 905-453–2121 ext. 1133 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
