Joseph Martinez


Saturday afternoon, Joseph Martinez safely returned to his place of residence.


Fresno County Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing “at-risk” man.  Joseph Martinez, age 66, went missing on Saturday.

Martinez was staying at an assisted living home located on the 2100 block of E. Linden Ave., between the communities of Easton and Fowler.  Around 9:30 am, staff at the facility noticed Martinez had walked away.  Staff members searched the surrounding area, but could not locate Martinez, so they notified the Sheriff’s Office.  There is a heightened concern because Martinez has medical issues.  

Martinez was last seen wearing a ball cap that says “Vietnam Veteran”, a red plaid long sleeve shirt and blue jeans. He may also have a red and blue jacket with him.  Martinez walks with a cane and has bandages on his feet.  He has walked away from the residence in the past, but was located and returned.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Martinez should immediately call the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office dispatch center at (559) 600-3111.
