Hopes and prayers for both you and your friends. I don't know what I would do if my Mom did something similar. Luckily, she doesn't seem to want to go out anywhere without me with her.

Curiouser and Curiouser...

As of right now, Dennis' current location is unknown. However, as the linked news story mentions, he had been seen at a bank in Stamford, CT (about 125 miles from his home) Monday morning, then paid cash for a night's stay at a hotel in New Jersey. By the time the police reached the hotel on Tuesday, Dennis had already checked out.

Police: Missing Southbridge man stayed at NJ hotel

ALL of this behavior is out of character for Dennis. I know his wife is confused and worried beyond belief. I hope and pray there is a happy resolution soon.

CG, I can't imagine what his wife and friends are going through right now. He seems to be barely one step ahead of those who are searching for him. Hoping and praying he is soon found and brought home safe and sound. Please continue to keep us posted.

Fortunately CG., we have members in every state he might go through. So if each of those members could contact the State Police on their individual states, he can leave a video trail. Here's hoping and praying that he is found and safely returned to Mary.

That's why I posted this information on DC, Addie. I "know" people in more states through here than I do in my friends list on Facebook.

*****************************

Update: Since finding out that Dennis was at the New Jersey hotel on Tuesday, there has been no further information on anyone seeing him anywhere. He's been gone six days. While it hurts my heart to say this, to me personally, it's looking more and more like he planned on "running away". Depending on how much money he withdrew from the bank, he could stay off the grid for a long, long time... SO very out of character from the guy I know. SO very heartbreaking for his dear wife of 30 years to be going through this trying time no matter what his cause for leaving.

Silver Alert? I've seen Amber alerts on freeways and TV here. Silver for senior citizens?

Yes. I see them often on highway alert boards here in NJ.

We have to remember that the baby boomers are now our elderly. And unfortunately for some of them Alzheimer is a reality.

He's home!

Just before 11:00 PM tonight (Saturday), Mary posted that Dennis had been found and was back home with his family. The only other detail is that Dennis is in need of medical attention and that he would be seeing their family doctor ASAP.

Thank you all for any little bit you did during this search, whether it be making sure this information was on State Highway Patrol websites or just your thoughts and prayers.
