An urgent search is underway for an elderly Melbourne couple, who were feared missing after being unable to attend a scheduled medical appointment.
Police are deeply concerned about the Bentleigh couple Otto and Gerda, both 87 years old, from the southeast of the city, who have been missing for nearly 24 hours.
The pair were last seen exiting a Kings Way car park on Tuesday evening around 6:30 pm in their gold Lexus sedan, registration PYM-184, heading into town.
Concerned family members rang the bell on Wednesday morning after Otto and Gerda were not present at an agreed medical appointment.
Their disappearance is out of character as the couple is usually in regular contact with family.
