“This trip was an almost daily routine for Mr. Stewart,” Fredericksburg Police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said. “Jerry never made it to Planet Fitness and it is unknown if he boarded the bus. His family has not seen or heard from him since.”

Stewart is described as a black man approximately 5’6” and 145 pounds. He wears glasses and he was last seen wearing a gray sweat suit.

“Mr. Stewart has a number of medical conditions that make his disappearance of particular concern,” Bledsoe said. “He has high blood pressure, and he is also diagnosed as bi-polar and schizophrenic. Mr. Stewart does not have any of his medications with him.”

Anyone who sees Mr. Stewart is asked to call the Fredericksburg Police Department at 540-373-3122.
