Case # 16-001451
On January 12th Mr. Smith passed out at the Home Run store in Albany, Ga. and suffered a head injury. He was released from the hospital on the same day. On January 13th, he went back to the same store and told the clerk he could not eat and while talking, he passed out …again hitting his head in the same spot as before and did not regain consciousness. 9-1-1 was called again and he was taken back to the hospital, this time they kept him until January 14th.
At 6:00 p.m. on January 14th, 2016, the hospital scheduled transportation to take him home and they dropped him off at the corner of his street (Lee St. in Albany, GA) at approximately 8:30pm. Neighbors confirmed that he did not go to his house, but kept walking. Family was never contacted by the hospital and did not realize he was missing until Tuesday, January 26th.
Mr. Smith has a younger son that lives in Albany and another daughter that lives in Bainbridge, Georgia. He has two brothers and other relatives in Albany that were never contacted either. He does not carry a cell phone. Family fears he may have brain trauma as this is out of his character to “go missing” and they ask the public to please report any sightings immediately.
