Law enforcement agencies commenced their search methods. An unexpected call let the authorities change their strategies. The missing man was found lying in leaves next to his ride, about a quarter-mile from his apartment.

With advancements in personal GPS tracking technology, it is now possible for elderly patients who suffer from Alzheimer’s and dementia to live much less assisted lives, oftentimes even in the console of their own homes. A GPS tracking device is attached to the patient, in the form of a smartwatch. Then the caretaker can use a smartphone or computer to ensure their whereabouts at any point in time. This can be enormously useful in cases where elderly individuals are prone to wander and get lost, or when they want to go out and run tasks or take walks without the pressure of being accompanied by their family. Further, the device can be programmed to send a notification when the wearer has passed outside of a definite boundary line, called a GEO- Fence.
