Alzheimer’s Patient Is Found In Tennessee

An Alzheimer’s patient from southeastern Kentucky is found in Tennessee.

Barbara Bishop, 64, was at her daughter's home in Rockcastle County on Sunday but didn't return home.

Tuesday afternoon she was found more than 70 miles away in La Follette, Tennessee, which is north of Knoxville.

Bishop's family says she was dehydrated but is expected to be o.k.

Bishop does suffer from the early stages of Alzheimer's, but her family says she was well enough to drive short distances.
