Authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding an elderly man who hasn’t been heard from since leaving his home in west suburban Northlake earlier this week and is in need of medication.

Earnest H. Moore, 87, drove from Northlake to Morton Grove in a silver 2013 Buick LaCrosse about noon Monday, according to an alert from Illinois State Police.

He last made contact about 2 a.m. Tuesday, when he called and said he was lost and looking for directions home, the alert said.
