ROCKLIN (CBS13) – Authorities are searching for a Rocklin man who has been missing since Wednesday evening.

Dennis Knibbs, 88, was last seen at his 6400 block of Wisp Court care home around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Officers, including a California Highway Patrol airplane and a K9 from the Placer County Sheriff's Office, showed up after the initial report but couldn't find Knibbs.
