    Maurice Taitt was visiting the states from Trinidad for a family reunion in Orlando. Taitt has dementia and diabetes.

    When he came back with his loved ones Saturday, he began to talk about Trinidad and was convinced he was back there.

    According to his son, he walked out of a house full of people on Wynbrooke Parkway the next day. The family upstairs thought Taitt was downstairs. The family downstairs thought the opposite.

    There's a huge state park in the area from which he went missing: https://www.google.com/maps/place/St...09adc?hl=en-us

    Praying for Mr Taitt and his family.
