The Wisconsin plates have 694RYG on them and the location address he was last seen at is the 4700 block of S. 27th Street. He is from California and has been here on a family visit, so he may not be too familiar with the area and could be searching for is way home.
He is described as being a white male, 195 pounds with medium build and he is five foot seven inches tall. Raymond Jason has gray hair and is said to be balding on top, along with hazel eyes and metal frame glasses.

Almost 10 years ago, I got a frightening phone call from my aunt explaining that my grandfather who had Alzheimer's, had already been missing for most of the day and we both knew that something was terribly wrong. It was late at night and so we went out on the usual routes that he would have taken (in the past) to look for him and I still can remember to this day how frightened I was that I was going to find him in a ditch or find out that he was robbed for his wallet. We found him the next day after the state police had pulled him over at the foot of a bridge. He had no money left in his wallet which was unlike him and the gas in his car was on empty. I was never so happy to see him and really felt relieved. I hope that Raymond Jason and his family will have the same luck and he is found healthy. The first 72 hours is a really important mark in a missing persons investigation. Even 10 years later, I can still remember how I felt like it was yesterday.
I urge anybody that may have seen him to please call the Milwaukee State Police right away at 414-935-7405. Thank you.
