    Drizzly, wet weather conditions Tuesday kept the Civil Air Patrol from joining in the search for a Pierre man missing since at least Sunday.

    So sad. People underestimate folks with dementia. Even when they're not supposed to drive you have to carry the car keys with you or lock them up.
    All posts from me are MY OPINION ONLY

    Very sad.. I wish it was possible to tag people with dementia, it would make it so much easier to find them
    Justice for Jennifer

    My son is the one who took the initial call for this gentleman going missing and I think LE should be commended for doing an excellent job. They spent countless hours looking for this gentleman and many sleepless nights combing the countryside looking for him. It still amazes me how a community can pull together like they did to bring someone's love one home. Prayers for the family and many many KUDOS for LE and the Civil Air Patrol for all they do each day to help us in our hour of need.
