A Colorado police officer assisted a 78-year-old woman with dementia in early May by walking with her for “quite a long time” after her worried husband told authorities she had wandered off. 

The Boulder Police Department said the man called for help in finding his wife. She was wearing a tracker, which helped officers “quickly locate her.”
