Please people, get a GPS on these elderly people with Alzheimers. The Sheriff's office has a program for this now. Hope they find the man and he is okay.

You know what I hate more than black friday? People that use the term 'people' when talking to others (like they're superior to the rest of us). Come on people, grow up.

So glad he's been found. I know that I care for my mom and she has advanced (if not end-stage) Alzheimer's but she hasn't wandered off. My aunt has and she isn't as bad off as my mom but I know all cases are different. I would be out of my mind if anything like this happened to my mom.

so glad he was found ok. I agree candleburner and not to mention all the weirdos out there that could have harmed him. He looks like a very sweet older gentleman.
