Dear Editor,

On Sept. 3, my husband, George Singer, who has dementia, was missing for over five hours. The response from our community was overwhelming.

I would like to thank the St. Clairsville Police Department, Cumberland Trail Fire Department and the Belmont County Sheriff Department for their quick action after they were notified. A coded alert was sent out by telephone and WTRF and WTOV were gracious in broadcasting an alert on the news.

I also wish to thank our pastor, church family, friends, children friends, neighbors and all who searched and/or prayed for him that day. He was found by an officer as he was coming out of a wooded area. He has many scratches but is otherwise okay.

George, our children, family and I will be forever grateful for all of you.

May God Bless You.

Nancy Singer

St. Clairsville
