Nagata, who lives in the 3100 block of S. McDonough near Sanger, was last seen on Jan. 29 around 5:30 p.m. by his caretaker. When the caretaker returned on Jan. 30, Nagata was gone from the residence.

Relatives were notified and began searching for Nagata. When they were unable to locate him, they contacted the Sheriff’s Office.

Nagata lives alone and has walked off in the past. He suffers from a medical condition and needs his medications.

The Sheriff Office’s Search and Rescue team has been called out and is currently searching the area.

“We have dozens of people on foot patrol, as well as utilizing our helicopter and dirt bikes,” said a sheriff’s spokesperson. “If residents have surveillance cameras in the area, please check them for any signs of Nagata. Also walk around your property to check for any clues. People who go missing often ask passing motorists for rides, if you were approached, please let us know right away.”

Anyone with any information on Nagata’s whereabouts or who may have seen Nagata is asked to call the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office at (559) 600-3111.
