    Denver NC to Greenville NC (4.5 hours)

    Instead of going east on I-40 wondering if they went west towards TN?

    And dementia? Hoping they have a cell phone.

    Well, I sure hope someone helps them soon. I know their son has to be worried sick about them.

    I-40 going towards Asheville is mountainous driving compared to flatter eastern part of the state. Not a toll road either.

    Thank goodness !! Also from the above article :

    Elderly Greenville, N.C. Couple Found Safe

    When LE stated they might be in TN, I guessed they were tracking either their car or phone. Maybe not. :confused: Either way, glad they have been found safe.

    Map from Denver, NC to Lenoir, NC below. Looks like they may have totally missed the exit onto I-40. MOO
