An elderly man from north St. Louis county who has Alzheimer's is still missing.
82-year-old R.V. Mandrell wandered away from his home in the 1700 block of New Jamestown around 7:30 Tuesday morning. Mandrell is described as a white man about five-and-a-half feet tall, weighing 155 pounds. He was wearing a white t-shirt and shorts when he went missing.
Anyone with information is asked to contact St. Louis County Police.
Charges are filed against a man accused of lighting a dog on fire.
A north St. Louis resident came home in late August to find that his dog, a pit bull named Zeus, was missing. The owner's neighbor called police to say he found Zeus badly burned in the back yard. The Humane Society took Zeus and was forced to put the dog down due to the severity of the burning.
Prosecutors say Wesley Reid attacked the dog. Investigators examined Reid's phone and discovered he was in the area at the time of the attack and he sent text messages indicating he planned on burning the dog.
Reid faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
