    Hwanyeo Park, missing since Tuesday.

    The Coppell Police Department is searching for Hwanyeo Park, last seen leaving his Coppell home in the 400 block of Rockcrest around 2 p.m., Tuesday, May 3.

    The 84-year old man is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, about 140-pounds, brown eyes, with white hair and balding on top. He was last seen wearing a dark baseball cap. No further descriptive information is available.

    Park only speaks Korean. He is known to take a walk in the afternoon leaving around 2 p.m. and returning by 6 p.m. and typically takes a route north on Denton Tap toward FM 3040 and beyond.

    He has no known serious medical or mental problems.

    Credible tips led multiple agencies to a 600-acre area near Lake Vista and MacArthur to search for the missing man.

    Local police and fire department personnel from Coppell, Lewisville, Carrollton and Denton County combed the area but found nothing. Search and rescue dogs were called in but nothing was found.

    Ground searches have ceased at this time, however the Coppell Police Department is still actively attempting to locate Park.

    If you have seen this man or have any information please call the Coppell Police Department at 972-304-3610.
