Dementia patient found wandering in the cold in Hubbard County
A dementia patient who wandered away from an assisted care facility Tuesday night was found after authorities used a thermal imager from a Minnesota State Patrol airship to locate him.
Temperatures were hovering around 40 degrees when the man went missing from Care-Age Country Home.
"The likelihood of the subject surviving the night because of low temperatures would have been slim," said Patrol Lt. Matt Langer in a news release.
