I am just concerned as to why they can not issue somthing like an Amber Alert. This is a man with dementia, off driving in another state. If they could post it on the bulletins on the interstate, like they do in an Amber Alert case, someone might could spot the car and call the authorities. I live in Whitmire, and we are all like one big family there and I am very concerned about Dr. Roche!

I'm concerned too Angie. I don't see why Amber Alerts or something similar can't be put into action when this happens. The entire family is in my prayers.

With the Roche's being such a large family I want to make sure we stay on open of this and give details that need to be given in order to help. We are praying for a save return and want to help anyway we can. Please stay up to date on tracing him we all would appreciate it.

Everybody just say a prayer for this sweet ol' fella! It really says something about a person when a community speaks of his kindness and respects him as they do.

Angie, I agree with you. Someone between Cherokee and Whitmire would easily have seen him in the last 48 hours...eating, getting gas, spending the night, etc.

He EASILY could be in another state by now. Check his credit card usage, his cell phone, and on and on and on.

All praise to the Lord for leading Dr. Roche to whoever recognized and rescued him. This is proof that there are angels on earth who look out for us.

It's good he's been found. I don't by any means mean to be a "fuddy duddy" but surely to goodness he'll give up his school board seat. When you're in "the beginning stages of Alzheimer's", can you hold up your duty to represent the citizens of Newberry County as a school board member respectively?

Maybe it's just me.

I am so happy to hear that he was found. I have many fond memories of Dr. Roche and the store. I loved getting a bag of the penny candy and a home-made rootbeer. He was always there with a smile and something nice to say. You don't see many places like that anymore.
