Missing Alzheimer’s Person

First mission of 2017 is a call out for a missing 71-year-old male with Alzheimer’s in the Wildomar area at 9:30am. We rolled out to basecamp and started dividing up the area and assigning teams to different areas. This is an area of rolling hills, lots of brush and numerous houses and outbuildings. It had rained the night before, but it had not been too cold. A sense of urgency was felt for anyone out all night. We had been on scene about two hours when we got the call that he had been found in a hospital emergency waiting room. Someone had picked him up during the storm and drove him to the hospital where he was waiting. We packed up our gear and headed home at 1:30pm in the early afternoon.
