ORIGINAL STORY: Father of four and grandfather of three, Carlos Wootan, is missing.

The 64-year-old disappeared from his home on Charmingdale Court Sunday morning. He was last seen getting breakfast at the McDonald’s on Moffett Road.

His wife, Janis Wooten, said, “Carlos didn’t take his phone, he didn’t take his iPad, he didn’t take any of his credit cards, he didn’t take his check book, he didn’t take his medication, and he had no means by which to support himself.”

Wootan suffers from diabetes and without any medicine his family believes that this is a medical emergency.

The Mobile Police Department is seeking help from the public in locating Carlos Wootan. Wootan may be driving a charcoal gray 2007 Dodge Dakota pickup and his family hopes someone will spot this vehicle. If you have seen Wootan please call 208-7200 or 208-7000.
