Found Alive!

Pin It Now!

Many of you asked me to update you if I found out anything about the missing man in my city and I'm happy to report that he's been found alive! He's been missing about a week and a half and they found him in a dry creek bed in Saratoga which is walking distance away. The news report says it looks like he has been there awhile. He was dehydrated but otherwise okay. I'm so happy for his family!!!


More info here.

Update: Here is a picture of Ross at the hospital with his family. Click here.

Glory to God for this wonderful news.
We had a lady in our town that went missing for about 11 days and was found, also alive.
Thanks, Cindy, for the report.

That is good to know. They need to get him one of those security bands or necklaces or whatever they are. They have them for these folks that are getting dimentia etc. Good answer to prayers here!

Praise God! Wonderful ending to such a scary time -- My mother had alzheimers and when I had her with me out I was terrified that I would lose her -- she could get away in a flash! Thanks for sharing good news.

This happy ending made my day. Thank GOD!

Thanks for the update. I can't even imagine the relief the family feels. My father-in-law is beginning to have these types of symptoms. He called me yesterday in a panic because he woke up from a nap not knowing where my mother-in-law was (she went to help at senior thift yard sal). She had told him before he napped that she would be doing that. Fortunately, I knew where she was and was able to just fluff it over for him without making him feel bad about not remembering. So, so difficult to watch. Thank you for caring so much as to post about it, you are just such an awesome lady.

Hi Cindy!

I'm so glad they found the lost fella....how frightening for his family.

I actually like the second chair betta! It just seems a bit more compact to me... :-)

I love that sofa....what a bargain! My daughter has the Pottery Barn sofa...The slipcovers are SUPER expensive...like 6-7 hundred dollars.

Blessings,
Spencer

Wonderful! One of my favorite uncles has been sent home with hospice care with Alzheimers. My kids lost their 'adopted' grandfather to it and another old friend lost his father to it...early onset. I'm not sure if he was ever able to enjoy his grandkids...which is so tragic. I'm glad they found him alive.

It's amazing he stayed in one place so long and didn't wander around more.

It's so sad because he's so young.
