FLINT TWP. — Flint Township police are seeking public help to locate an elderly man missing since Sept. 3.

Darwin Smith, 76, reportedly walked away from Genesee Gardens Independent Senior Living Community, 4495 Calkins Road (just east of Linden Rd), where he was recovering from a stroke. He was last seen between 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, according to police reports.

The search has primarily been focused in the Flint Township and Flushing area.

“We will continue to follow up on leads as they are received,” Baldwin said
