It's been more than 24 hours since an elderly man with Alzheimer's went missing in Monongalia County.
Despite an extensive search, which has included helicopters and rescue dogs, there's still been no sign of him.

Police have issued a Silver Alert for 79-year-old Laurence Nichol. He wandered away from his daughter's home on Turtle Creek Drive Tuesday afternoon. Since that time crews have been searching non stop for him.
Mike Wolfe, the interim director MECCA 9-1-1, said it's still considered a search and rescue mission.
Officials have been joined by more than 100 volunteers.
One of those volunteers is Morgantown resident, Kelly Kerns. She said she came to help because she couldn't imagine what Nichol's family is going through. "It's getting cold, you're afraid for them because you don't know what's happened to him," Kerns said.  "I want to do anything to find this guy."

Nichol weighs 145 pounds, has blue eyes, gray hair, and was last seen wearing a red jacket, light pants, and brown shoes.  He's also known to walk with a limp and should have his contact information in his pocket.
Officials said they plan on continuing their search until Nichol is found, and they're still looking for volunteers.
If you would like to help you're asked to head to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, on 161 Meadow View Lane in Cheat Lake.

It's actually "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" for anyone who needs the exact name.
