SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – There's growing concern Thursday in the search for a missing Ramona man.

Carl Salayer, 67 has Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and hasn't been seen since Monday. Volunteers and authorities say rough terrain is complicating the effort.

On Thursday, horses arrived from San Bernardino County and Riverside to assist in the search and rescue effort. Border Patrol is also assisting in the search for Salayer with their dogs. About a dozen people were on the ground combing the area around his home.

Salayer was last seen Monday night at his home in the 17000 block of Handlebar Road near Highland Valley Road. He needs medication, and officials believe he might have fallen and become incapacitated.

Despite the search stretching into its third day, searchers are not giving up.

"Please, in the area where he lives, please give your property a good hard look. (Salayer) could be in a culvert, he could be in an outbuilding, he could be in a trailer, he could be under a bush. Right now we're worried about him being dehydrated. He hasn't had food or water in now 48 hours, more than that. It gets hot during the day, and pretty chilly at night. We don't think he has any protective clothing – any clothing whatsoever, so he's going to be identifiable," San Diego County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said.

Anyone who believes they may have seen Salayer is urged to call 911 or the sheriff's department.
