Deputies Locate Alzheimer’s Patient Sarasota Sheriff’s Office

Date: 2020-07-09

Deputies were alerted to a missing elderly patient with a history of Alzheimers. As patrol units responded, our pilots using their WESCAM MX-10 began assisting with a visual search from overhead. At the same time, units were alerted to a man standing in the intracoastal waterway holding onto the seawall behind Peacock Road in Sarasota. Air-1 responded and guided ground units to the man where they used a ladder to assist him back onto dry land. Very luckily, the 73-year-old man was OK thanks to our quick response and a few good samaritans.
