An Alabama state trooper reunited a missing 82-year-old Alzeheimer’s patient with his family after he spotted him at a truck stop in Falkville.

Trooper Robert Pettit spotted Joseph Ellis Havens early Thursday and noticed he was wandering around the parking lot and not dressed appropriately. Havens told the trooper he had stopped to get gas and then realized his truck was missing.

Pettit, whose grandfather had Alzheimer’s, spotted the signs of the disease. He contacted his relative, located his car and took him to a local hospital.
