CHICAGO (WLS) -- A 76-year-old Rolling Meadows man was reported missing after he was last seen at a bank in Chicago's West Englewood neighborhood.

Vasudeva Kethireddy left his home at about 8 a.m. Saturday with plans to collect rent payment from his tenants on the South Side. He owns about a half dozen properties, but the tenant he had planned to meet said he did not show up, his family said.

Kethireddy was captured on surveillance video at about 4 p.m. at the J.P. Morgan bank at 6940 South Ashland Avenue in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, according to Rolling Meadows police.

His license plate was last detected near 70th and Lafayette near the Dan Ryan Expressway.

Vasudeva Kethireddy, 76, was reported missing while collecting rent checks from his rental properties in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood.

He was last seen driving a white 2005 Toyota Prius with Illinois license plate AR74968, police said. His vehicle was located in Chicago, police said Tuesday afternoon.

Last year, Kethireddy was carjacked and went missing. A day later, he called from Stroger Hospital. His family hopes something similar happened in this situation.

Kethireddy is described as being 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighs about 135 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 847-255-2416.

Police are looking for a 76-year-old man from northwest suburban Rolling Meadows who is missing from Chicago.
