Dennis Robertson, who is also known as "D'Nell" or "Den," was last seen Saturday morning in the 17600 block of Amantha Avenue near E. Radbard Street, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Robertson, who has a gray mustache and goatee, was last seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and a fedora-style hat. He stands 6 feet, 5 inches tall and has brown eyes and balding hair.
His family believes he may have walked out of the house carrying his TV remote and say they hope it will not be mistaken for a weapon.
Robertson could possibly be headed to Compton, authorities said.
