Earlier, Victoria Police was looking for Prem Kumar Makhija who was missing since 6 am Monday 15th May morning.
Mr Makhija is in Melbourne since 7th April 2023 visiting his daughter Rekha in the St Kilda suburb.
Ms Rekha told The Australia Today, “My father went for his daily morning walk around 5.30-6 am but had failed to return home.”
“He was wearing a grey Kurta (Indian Shirt) and white Pajama (loose Indian pants) and light green shoes.”
Mr Makhija was last seen at Vele Stree, St Kilda before he went for a walk.
Rekha says my dad has an early onset of dementia and can potentially forget locations.
When he left home this morning he had his phone however the phone is switched off right now.
