Palisades Woman Makes Tearful Plea in Search for Missing Husband

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A Palisades woman is hoping for a Christmas miracle.

Linda Lee has been heart-broken since her elderly husband vanished two weeks ago. Family and friends continued their search Thursday.

"I need him," Linda Lee said while being comforted.

With heavy hearts and tears streaming down their faces, family members plead for the public's help in finding a missing loved one.

"Can we give this to you? It's a picture of our uncle, and he's missing," a family member said while passing out fliers.

Sixty-seven-year-old Ronald Lee left his Palisades home December 5th, and hasn't returned. His wife says he has difficulty hearing, but has no other medical issues.

"He's been gone for over two weeks," Linda Lee said through tears. "I really miss him. Please, please."

She and her husband have been married for 35 years.

"It's been so lonely because usually, 99% of the time, we're together," Linda Lee said.

Police say Ronald Lee was seen on a city bus near the main public library, and was also spotted at Pearlridge Center.

"I just heard that he was walking in a daze," Linda Lee said. "All I want is for people to help me find him."

The retired postal worker is about 5'2" tall and weighs about 155 lbs.

Family and friends have been searching non-stop, checking out shopping centers, parks and fast-food restaurants.

"With all this help, I really, really hope we can find Ronald. I really do," Linda Lee said through tears. "Christmas without him wouldn't be the same. I just miss him."

She and her family are hoping for the best Christmas gift of all.
