08-23-06 – The search for a missing elderly man from the Dallas area ended Wednesday morning in Grayson County.
The search first began Tuesday, when the man’s car was found parked along side Highway 82, about 7 miles west of Sherman.
Deputies say the 79-year-old man has Alzheimer’s, and had wandered off. Searchers looked for him until about 12:30 AM Tuesday night, and resumed their search Wednesday morning, with help from a special rescue group out of Lewisville.
The man was found about 8 Wednesday morning alive and well, under a culvert on Highway 82, not far from where his truck was found the day before.
Deputies are not releasing the elderly man's name, but say he was taken to a local hospital and will be just fine. Officials say the man was just happy to be found.
