UPDATE: Missing South Ogden man found in Idaho

SOUTH OGDEN — Police are searching for an elderly South Ogden man who was last seen late Wednesday morning. 

Walter Leodolter, 86, was last seen around noon Wednesday, Nov. 8, at his home at 5900 S. 1100 East in South Ogden, according to a press release from South Ogden Police

Leodolter has dementia and left without medication for a heart condition. South Ogden Police Sgt. Wilford DeHart said he also left home without his phone, wallet and unknown amount of gas in his vehicle. 

He is driving a metallic dark gray 2015 Subaru Forester with a Utah license plate number reading AFLENZ. 

He is 5’7”, weighs 150 pounds, and has gray hair. Police don’t know what he was wearing when he left his home. 

Leodolter is known to frequent the Fresh Market grocery store in South Ogden, the Pleasant Valley Library branch in Washington Terrace and the Dillard’s at the Newgate Mall in Ogden, DeHart said. Police have checked all three locations and have not spotted him. 

He speaks fluent German and, because of his dementia, sometimes forgets he speaks English, DeHart said. 

Anyone who has seen him is encouraged to call Weber County Dispatch at 801-629-8221.
