VISTA, Calif. — Authorities asked the public Friday for help in finding a missing Vista man who may appear disoriented to strangers due to medical conditions.
The last known sighting of Daniel Garcia-Mendez, 52, was when he left his home in the 600 block of West California Street around 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to sheriff’s officials.
