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.
