HENDERSON COUNTY, Tenn. — Crews were able to safely locate a missing Alzheimer’s patient Friday evening, according to the Henderson County Rescue Squad. His family says he went missing around 1 p.m. Crews were able to find him near his home off of Highway 104 South. First responders say they arrived on the scene around 3:30 p.m. and found him roughly an hour later. “I showed up and they found him about a mile and a half away from his house, just a few minor cuts and bruises on him. Other than that, he’s in good shape,” said Capt. Josh Wright with the Henderson County Rescue Squad. Officials say he was located in the same area he was found about a month ago when he had wandered off.
