Tragic end to the search for a missing Pasadena man

The body of 71-year-old Gerald Masao Sakamoto was found today two days after he was reported missing.

Sakamoto had alzheimer's and had been arrested at about 3 a-m Friday after driving the wrong way on a freeway in the San Gabriel Valley.

He was booked downtown and then released Friday evening at about 7:30.

His family reported him missing the next day.

Today he was found dead in a city maintenance yard near the inmate reception center.

His family says he had no money and no cellphone.

Pasadena police say there does not appear to be any evidence of foul play.
