BLUFFTON, S.C. (WSAV) — Bluffton Police have suspended their search for an elderly man who went missing from an assisted living facility Tuesday night.

However, a volunteer search party continues to look for the missing man this weekend in the Bluffton/Sea Pines area.

Tribble’s wife, Margaret “Missy” Tribble said, because of his condition, he has the “social capability of a friendly five-year-old.”

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) said Jack Tribble, 79, left the Palmettos of Bluffton assisted living facility around 6 p.m.

Tribble is on foot and was last seen wearing an orange hat, white shirt, tan jacket and black pants. He’s 5-foot-10 and has a slinder-build with grayish-brown hair, BCSO said.

The City of Bluffton said police have exhausted all physical capabilities in its ground search but will continue to actively investigate. Police ask residents to view video doorbells and security footage in neighborhoods around SC170 and Sun City to see if they see Tribble.

If so you’re urged to call Detective Sergeant Ryan Fazekas at 843-706-4513, email: rfazekas@townofbluffton.com or for a Spanish tipline call 843-706-7806 Bluffton police ask residents to refrain from searching for Tribble on their own.

A $15,000 reward is now being offered.
