A Crown Heights wife is pleading for help after her elderly husband, who suffers from dementia, went missing earlier this week. 
The family of 79-year-old David Lewis say they are desperate and asking for any information on the whereabouts of their devoted husband and brother-in-law.

David Lewis was last seen on Aug. 25 leaving NYC Health + Hospitals in Lefferts Gardens and walking toward New York Avenue.  
He was wearing a yellow polo shirt, black pants, beige cap, and black and white Adidas sneakers.
Angela Lewis says her husband suffers from dementia and his condition had been improving but requires medication. 
Lewis’ family gathered Saturday in the home shared by him and his wife Angela to make signs that they plan to hang up across the city this weekend.  
The NYPD are currently searching for David Lewis and are also asking for the public's assistance. Anyone with information should call crime stoppers at 1-800-577-tips.
