by: WASHINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE - John Knorr The public is being asked to help find a Tigard man who disappeared at St. Vincent Hospital during a trip to the emergency room on Christmas.

John Knorr recently experienced a stroke and may be acting strangely. He is 6 feet tall, 170 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a brown hoodie, blue jeans and sandals.

According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, at 7:43 p.m. on Dec. 25, deputies responded to the hospital on the report of a missing person. They learned that Knorr's mother had taken him to the hospital because he was acting strangely, but that he disappeared somewhere between the parking garage and the emergency room.
