Emergency personnel including a number of members with the Broomtown and Gaylesville fire departments are searching for a missing person in the area of County Road 89, between Blanche and Watson’s Crossroads.
A caller reported they had awoken to find that the door was open, and the 61 year old male subject in the home who suffers with dementia, George Edward Hall, Sr., was gone. That call went out around 5:40 this (Friday) morning, and at that point it appeared the subject had already been gone for a short period of time. He was reportedly last seen wearing blue jeans and either a plaid shirt or blue denim shirt.
Additional manpower was called in to help with the search a short time later.
Anyone seeing anyone walking alongside the roadway should check on that person and call 9-1-1 or emergency personnel immediately.
