ST. GEORGE – Edward Raymond Brogly, 84, has been missing since Tuesday, and police are asking for the public’s help in locating the St. George man.

Brogly was last seen Tuesday afternoon on North Lava Flow Drive, St. George Police Officer Lona Trombley said. The man had said he was going to dinner at the Olive Garden restaurant at 1340 East 170 South in St. George.

“He does have the early stages of dementia, and he does get confused,” Trombley said.

Brogly could be anywhere, Trombley said, but it is suspected he may be in or near Kolob area or Panguitch.

A week ago the missing man decided to head to Kolob, one of his favorite places, but was subsequently found by the side of the road near Panguitch after his vehicle ran out of gas.

Brogly may also be headed to his home state of Illinois, Trombley said.

Brogly has been in the St. George area six years, but patients with dementia often revert to what is most familiar, she said.

The missing man has diabetes, and authorities and family members are concerned about his health.

Brogly is driving a light greenish-blue 2015 Prius V Model 3 with a Utah license plate X165XS.

    Why is a man with dementia allowed to drive at all???

    Seriously, if this man is suffering from dementia- even early stages- he should have been declared medically unfit to drive and his license revoked.

    We don’t need any more car accidents involving ‘medical incidents’ in this area. If he runs over anyone in the process, he needs to be sued, as well as his family (for letting him drive) and his doctor (for not stopping him).

      Geez man, sounds like you could use some more compassion in your life and in your heart if this is how you’re going to respond to something like this. Please be considerate and show some empathy and support, that’s what is really needed right now.

        You must be new to the area.
        One of the top ranking ‘excuses’ for accidents around here is a ‘medical incident’- and that’s the ‘I didn’t know I had a problem’ type.
        This is a KNOWN problem for Edward Brogly, yet his family and his doctor still let him get behind the wheel of a 2 ton weapon.
        I hope you save some of your compassion for the poor victim he ends up driving over and killing- and accident that could have been prevented, mind you.
        Please be considerate and show some empathy and support for the other drivers on the road, the ones that want to arrive home alive to their own families.
