PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland Police are asking the public to keep an eye out for a missing man who suffers from a number of medical and mental health issues.

Eric Gigliotti, 34, went missing from his residence in the 17700 block of SE Division Street early Saturday morning and has health and mental issues that "could seriously endanger his welfare, if left untreated," police said in a press release.

Gigliotti left the residence voluntarily but police said his conditions make them consider him a "vulnerable adult."

Gigliotti is 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 pound with wavy, receding dark-colored hair down to his collar. He has brown eyes, a full beard and mustache. He was last known to be wearing a three-quarter length navy wool jacket, a gray "Bigfoot Restaurant" hoodie, jeans and black high-top tennis shoes.

He may be carrying blackback pack and police said he had a small white and tan puppy with him.

Anyone who knows of Gigliotti's whereabouts is asked not to approach him, but to instead immediately call 9-1-1 and report his location.

Anyone with additional, non-emergency information is asked to contact Detective Mike Weinstein, Missing Persons Unit, at 503-823-0446 or
