LAKELAND | Every phone call or knock on the door Tuesday gave Janice Morgan hope that her 85-year-old father had been found.

Her prayer was that Polk County deputies could locate Thomas Joseph Morgan before 24 hours had passed. But by Tuesday night, she knew chances of survival for the Alzheimer's patient were dropping.

"I think they are doing everything they can do to find him," she said of the deputies. "But I think it's going to be up to the public at this point to spot him somewhere. With his mental state, you don't know where he's going to go."

Nearly three dozen Polk County Sheriff's deputies combed North Lakeland on Tuesday, searching for Thomas Morgan who walked away from his home at 1639 Country Meadow Drive on Monday.
