Texas Game Wardens used K-9 units and drones to locate a missing 74-year-old with dementia on Thursday.

They said that they responded to a request for assistance in Montague County. The team was able to track the man's director of travel, and the drone as deployed around 10:30 p.m.

With these tactics, they were able to locate the man 7 hours after he was last seen. The man was cold and wet - but safe and alive thanks to first responders.
