A West Hollywood man with medical issues has been missing since Saturday, Los Angeles County Sheriff's authorities said.

Michael Spizer, 74, was last heard from at 2 p.m. Saturday. He was wearing a gray dress shirt and khaki pants, said Det. Diane Harris with the Sheriff's Department's Missing Persons Unit in a statement. The criminal defense lawyer's roommate reported him missing, and his family is aware of his disappearance, Harris told The Times.

"Apparently it's unusual for him not to return home," Harris said. Spizer's roommate told authorities that he had left for an interview at Men's Central Jail on Saturday morning in his 2000 silver Mitsubishi Diamante and later called to say he was going to be running some errands. He has not been heard from since.

He suffers from a heart condition.

The Sheriff's Department described Spizer as 5 foot 8 and 180 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information should contact the sheriff’s homicide bureau missing persons unit at (323) 890-5500.
