POWHATAN COUNTY, Va. -- The Powhatan County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a missing 88-year-old man who was last seen being dropped off at the McGuire VA Medical Center. Clarence Gee had walked away from a residence in the 4000 block of Bell Rd in Powhatan County around 11 a.m. on July 2.

The Powhatan County Sheriff's Office said the Gee was picked up by a citizen in Powhatan requested to be transported to the Mcguire VA Medical Center in Richmond.

He was dropped off at the hospital around 1 p.m., and the driver watched him enter the center. But the Mcguire VA Medical Center has no record of Gee being admitted or treated.

"Mr. Gee told [a hospital] employee he was homeless and needed a place to stay," a sheriff's spokesperson said Friday. "Mr. Gee may have been moved to the ER at some point but his current location is unknown. It is possible that he walked out of the ER or that he may be in a shelter somewhere in Richmond."

Gee is a Black man who was last seen wearing a dark suit with a hat and a lime green shirt. Gee, who is originally from Texas, has only been living in Powhatan for a few days.

If anyone has any information in reference to Mr. Clarence Gee please contact the Powhatan County Sheriff’s Office at (804) 598-5656.
