Either someone gave him a ride or he left on foot, in which case maybe some search dogs would be useful.

I hope you Dad is found safe and sound,KKing.Although he's never been *diagnosed* with Alzheimer's did he show any signs of confusion? Perhaps early,undiagnosed Alzheimer's or a similar neurological syndrome?

I presume they checked phone records, emails, for locked doors, put up posters with pictures in the neighborhood?

The FT Worth Police have been fantastic. Helicopter search last night and the dogs were out most of the day.

Dad’s pretty sharp at 72. He’s a retired US Army officer after serving for 31 years.

Just helped him with his Windows 7 beta load on his laptop and he’s been a big help for me while I recover from hip resurfacing surgery at his home.
