The search party plans to gather at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meetinghouse, at 160 E. 4600 South in Murray.

Volunteers may be asked to drive to surrounding cities to search and distribute flyers, a news release from Kapos’ family said.

His family said he suffers from early stages of dementia and is normally unable to walk any distance without resting.

Kapos, who is about 5-feet-3-inches, was wearing a short-sleeved, red plaid button-down shirt and jeans when he was last seen. He weighs about 145 pounds.

Anyone with information on Kapos’ whereabouts is asked to call Murray police at  801-840-4000.
