Case Closed On Missing Alzheimer's Patient

The case is closed nearly six months after an East Texas man with Alzheimer's went missing. The remains of 75-year-old Edward Phillips of Starrville, were found on a wooded lot on Oak Road in Smith County last month. Dental records had to be used to identify him.

Phillips went missing last August. Authorities believe his Alzheimer's kept him from finding his way out of the woods. Foul play is not suspected.
