Police Looking For Missing Man With Alzheimer's

The search is on for a missing Lincoln County man, who suffers from Alzheimer's.

State Police say 86-year-old Ralph Watson dropped his wife off at the Lincoln County Courthouse Thursday morning, and was supposed to wait for her.

But for some reason, he left, and didn't return.

Police think he may be heading to Georgetown.

Watson is driving a white 2006 Ford Taurus. The car has a Kentucky license plate of 187-CAS.

    Maybe they don't have the finances and can't get help from the state to afford someone to take care of things for them. It's an awful situation, I know and I fear for him and his family. He should not be allowed to drive, I agree. But the state would rather spend money prosecuting him if he has any kind of accident rather than spend money now to help them get a caretaker.

    My mother has Alzheimer's as well. I know that this is a mean, horriable disease. So, why was a 86 year old man with Alzheimer's doing driving a car?
