PARADISE, Calif. -

Paradise Police are looking for the driver who hit and killed an elderly pedestrian.

The body of Myron Bolstad, 73, was found in bushes near Clark and Bille Roads around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police said Bolstad had just left Paradise Alliance Church and was crossing Clark Road when he was hit by a car.  He was going to his sister's house.

"I don't have any animosity towards them but I just pray they'll turn themselves in and own up of what they did," says Ellen Larsen, Bolstad's sister.

There were no witnesses, but investigators believe Bolstad was hit by a small import vehicle that now has damage on the right side.

If you have information call Paradise Police.
