Sacramento resident David Adebayo, 65, has been missing since Wednesday, according to a police report filed Thursday with the Sacramento Police Department.

Adebayo is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 165 pounds with salt and pepper black hair. He was last seen in the Natomas area of Sacramento.

Daughter Darnisha Kittling said her father probably went missing about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday during his daily routine of picking up cans and taking them to nearby recycling plants. She said her father would also walk around the Natomas Marketplace shopping center for can collection. He has done this for roughly 15 years, she said.

There were no packed bags or notes left behind, Darnisha said.

Spokesman Sgt. Andrew Pettit said there are no new leads on the case.

About 12 years ago, Adebayo suffered a stroke, Darnisha said. She said she is worried because her father needs medication to maintain his blood pressure and to prevent extreme moods.

Adebayo lived with his daughter Morayo in Sacramento.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sacramento Police Department at (916) 264-5471 or Sacramento City Police Missing Persons at (916) 808-0650.
