LURAY — The Virginia State Police issued a Senior Alert for Leonard Charles Fox, 73, who was last seen Sunday evening on Horsepen Road in Luray. Fox is listed as 5'5" and 233 lbs, with brown eyes and gray/black hair. He could be operating a green 1999 Ford Ranger pickup truck, with a license number ZVY-3503. The police report states that Fox has a "cognitive impairment and the disappearance poses a credible threat to his safety."

"At this time, we have not been able to locate him," said Luray Police Chief C.S. "Bow" Cook. "We have had several reports of him possibly being seen, but nothing has gotten us to the point of finding him."

Cook said that anybody with information can call the Luray Police Department at (540) 743-5343 or the Page County Sheriff's Office at (540) 743-6571.
Urgency is key, Cook noted.

"If someone thinks they see him, call right away," Cook said. "Sometimes, they call us after half an hour or so has passed. He can travel quite a distance in a short amount of time."

Cook is hopeful that the community can come together to help find him.

"I'm asking for citizens to be aware," Cook said. "We would like to get him returned safely and any help would be appreciated."
