Police in Arlington have ended their search for an elderly man who went missing early Sunday afternoon. When police found his vehicle, it was empty in the parking lot of an office building in Dallas.

Arlington Police Department spokesman Christopher Cook said a caretaker for 69-year-old William Ray Lux reported him missing around 1 p.m. on Sunday. Cook said Lux had last been seen at his residence in the 1800 block of Daytona Drive a day earlier.

He was located Monday morning at Dallas Methodist Hospital by Dallas police, Cook said.

The caretaker told police on Sunday that Lux left the residence on Saturday around 9 a.m. in his pickup truck. The caretaker became concerned and notified police when he didn't return on Sunday.

Cook said Arlington police officers were able to locate Lux's truck around 6 p.m. on Sunday. However, it was about 20 miles away in Dallas at the Dallas Veterans Administration building at 4500 S. Lancaster Road.

Cook said Lux was not in the truck when officers found it and had been believed to be riding on a red motorized scooter that has a small American flag on the back.

Two nights before Christmas in 1974, Rachel Trlica, Renee Wilson and Julie Moseley went shopping at the Seminary South Shopping Center and were never seen again. Their bodies have never been found and no suspects have been identified.
