“Heat advisory remains in effect until 9 p.m. this evening.
High Temperatures: 95-103.

A heat advisory means that precautions should be taken to reduce your exposure to the heat of the day, if possible. Drink plenty of fluids. Frequent air-conditioned spaces and check up on relatives and neighbors.
Those working or spending time outdoors, the elderly, children and those unaccustomed to excessive heat will be most susceptible to dangerous heat illness.”
Hope remains as video surfaces
The San Diego Police Department stated that a surveillance video shows Taiheng Sun, a Scripps Ranch resident who has been missing since Thursday, June 15, walking toward West Sycamore Park on the day he was reported missing. The video shows him entering the park about 8:35 a.m.
A photo from the video, taken from a camera atop a nearby utility pole, shows Sun wearing a blue shirt, a dark blue hat, dark gray pants and carrying a white jacket.
Sun was last seen on Thursday in his home on Maple Grove Lane near Sycamore Trail Road. Police describe Sun as an Asian male, 85 years of age, 5-feet-6-inches tall, weighing 140 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. He has been missing from the Stonebridge area since Thursday. Sun suffers from Alzheimer's and speaks little English. He was home when his family left for the day, but was missing when they returned after 7:30 that evening.
Police ask anyone with information to call them at (619) 531-2000.
