    Horrible!

    One take-away point: If you have vulnerable friends/relatives, make sure they have current and accurate "emergency contact" information with them at all times, particularly when traveling alone.
    Anyone want to bet that wasn't simply old information that had not been updated?

    The article doesn't mention if he was traveling alone or with someone. If he was traveling with someone, why didn't they speak up? And if he wasn't, why on Earth is an elderly man with dementia traveling alone? :confused:
