Photo of Israel Morales-Chavez, missing from the Dundalk area.Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's assistance in locating a critical missing adult man from Dundalk.

Israel Antonio Morales-Chavez was last seen yesterday around 11 a.m. at home in the 1900 block of Ewald avenue, 21222. While it is not unusual for him to leave home unannounced, it is atypical for him not to return home in the evening. He does not drive so he likely left on foot and calls to his cell phone have gone unanswered, leaving friends and family concerned for his safety. Israel was also recently released from the hospital after suffering a serious medical condition which may cause him to become confused, causing further concern for his well-being.

Israel Morales-Chavez is a 42-year-old Hispanic man who speaks broken English, approximately 5'3", 175 pounds, with brown eyes and short black hair and a close-trimmed beard. He was last seen wearing a royal blue sweatshirt with white or light blue stripes, the black baseball cap with a white "Puma" logo as seen in this picture, and black slippers. 

Anyone who may have information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020 or the Dundalk Precinct at 410-887-7320.
