Is it possible he is staying with some one and there not letting family know ? was he abducted? Did he fall in a hole or old well and has perished? all these terrible thoughts goes thru your mind.
I just hope this story has a happy ending for all.
But Georges case is all too just familiar , one of many elderly who go walking away from there homes never to be seen alive again and as in most cases they sadly end when there remains are found months some times years later by hunters or hikers.
I sure hope this is not the case for George and all turns out well.
Having dealt with friends whose relatives develop dementia they often revert back to memory's when they where young and possibly this was what George was trying to do to get back home or some where from earlier in his life.
If you where a fan of the Sopranos TV show you will remember a episode where elderly Junior Soprano went wandering into his old neighborhood and was luckily found by the police. A late friend of mines mom when she developed dementia kept looking for the young daughter who had died decades ago in the 30's from illness .Its heart breaking to watch them go in and out one day they know who you are the next your a stranger to them .
There are tracking wrist bands and alarms available to help prevent wandering even systems which can be put on a loved ones home for a few hundred dollars but most people do not know they exist or when they do inquire unscrupulous dealers want thousands of dollars for a system which costs $300.00-500.00
This is where we need help from corporations and charity's to help family's with these tracking systems being put in place .Because it happens all the time especially in Western Pa. where we have the 2nd biggest elderly population behind Florida . No family should ever have to go thru what the Pochibas are now going thru . Its not fair we have the technology to prevent it and we are not using it.
Update : Sadly They have Found Georges body in a grass field near his home
