Missing disabled man is seen in U District


A developmentally disabled man missing from a Seattle Mental Health group home in Auburn for nearly a week was last spotted at a bus stop near Northeast Campus Parkway and Brooklyn Avenue Northeast in Seattle's University District, Auburn police said Monday.

William Anthony "Bill" Rosene, 55, was discovered missing from Chartley House Wednesday. He was spotted in the U District Saturday.

Rosene's mother, Mariateresa Herrera of Seattle, said her son has the mental capacity of a 12- or 13-year-old and needs medication twice a day.

"He is about 6 feet tall, has salt-and-pepper hair and a large stomach that sticks out," she said, "and when he walks, he never moves his arms."

Auburn police spokesman Bill Pierson said anyone with information is urged to call Auburn police at 253-931-3080 if Rosene is spotted in that city or 911 if he is seen elsewhere.
