    Awww, praying for him, and his loved ones and rescuers.

    This happened once to my dad who was suffering from Alzheimers. He didn't escape from us, but from a hospital that we had left him at for tests. They had given him drugs to put him to sleep, but he woke up earlier than they expected, got dressed and walked out.

    It was a very scary time for us, and the next time we had to leave him, we took his shoes with us. ;o)

    God bless.
