Lisbon, ND - The search is intensifying for a 78-year old Lisbon man, missing since Friday.

The Civil Air Patrol planned to send up 5 planes today to search over southeast North Dakota for Leon Weight today. Flights had to be scrubbed yesterday because of low visibility.

Volunteers have also been doing ground searches. Weight lives at the North Dakota Veterans Home. He's considered a vulnerable adult.

Police say Weight was last seen near Edgeley Friday night when he asked for directions to Lisbon from a state trooper.

If you've seen his car, described as a 1991 Red Pontiac Grand Prix North Dakota plates HKP-260, you're asked to call police.
