Lopez is a diabetic, has dementia and has trouble walking on his own, according to a Garfield County Sheriff’s Office missing person report. He uses a walker.

Maria Loya, Lopez’s sister, said her brother typically walks with his head down.

Loya said they are both originally from Boulder and that Filmer could mistakenly be heading there. 

Filmer is known to like fishing and ponds, as well as casinos.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Filmer Lopez can call the Garfield County Dispatch Center at 970-625-8095 or call 911.
