The Milam County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in locating a 60 year-old man who suffers from dementia due to a brain injury. 
Gary Kanarr may seem disoriented or confused at times and his wife does not know where he would have tried to go, but he was last seen at the CEFCO in Milano between 2 and 2:30 p.m. Thursday. “We believe that he probably got a ride from a truck driver or other motorist and could be anywhere,” Chief Deputy Chris White said.
Kanarr is described as 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighing about 165 pounds with a thin moustache and brown hair and brown eyes.  He was last seen wearing blue jean pants, a black t-shirt, black Velcro shoes and walks with a noticeable limp. He may still have his silver colored walking cane with him as well as additional pairs of clothing kept in a large black duffle bag.  He is also wearing a black ball cap with a veteran insignia as seen in the photo, White said.
White said deputies did search the fields and abandoned building areas around the store as well as utilizing a DPS helicopter to look for signs that he had walked off from the CEFCO, however there was no visible evidence that he could still be in the area.
If anyone has any information regarding Mr. Kanarr’s whereabouts, please contact Chief Deputy Chris White at 254-697-7033.
