San Joaquin County investigators have identified a person of interest in the disappearance of an 83-year-old Stockton man.

Robert Piccetti has not been seen by family since Thanksgiving, but investigators say he was last seen the following Tuesday afternoon inside a Burger King restaurant in Lockeford. Detectives say Picetti was with Otilio Garcia.

Investigators say Garcia has been “deceptive” during questioning. He reportedly told detectives that he and Piccetti had gone to Ione to go mushrooming. Garcia would not tell investigators why he allegedly left Piccetti behind and drove Picetti’s truck back to Stockton alone.

Search crews will continue to look for Piccetti around Highway 88 and Highway 124.
