ORIGINAL STORY - A search continues for a missing Clay County man suffering from Alzheimer's who walked away from his residence on Dundon Road last week.
The family of 62-year-old Jerry Holcomb is clinging to hope that he's still alive.
The man's nephew Dustin Berry said, "He came in at about 7:30 and asked me if I needed anything to drink or anything to eat, and I said no I'm good Uncle Jerry. And then he walked off and I figured he came out to the front porch ..."
State Police issued a Silver Alert and officers and K-9 Units spent the past several days following up on tips, searching the heavily wooded area.
Holcomb is 5'8", 173 pounds and has green eyes. He was last seen wearing black pants, a Hawaiian shirt, and flip flops.
