On November 18, 2017 about 7:45 PM, Norco Deputies responded to a call for service in regards to an elderly man inside of a residence who appeared disorientated. When deputies arrived, they recognized the subject as John McCormick, who had been missing since Friday, November 17. McCormick was medically evaluated by California Department of Fire personnel and seemed in good health. McCormick was taken to a local hospital for overnight observation.  An extensive search was conducted for McCormick for several hours when reported missing, including the use of Riverside County Sheriff blood hound and helicopter. Citizens of Norco also assisted in the search, some on horseback, but he was not located. A Silver Alert was issued for McCormick by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department due to his age and medical condition. That alert has been cancelled.
