Man Sneaks Out of Nursing Home to See His Girlfriend

Les Jardins d’Arcadie

A 93-year-old man was recently reported missing from the nursing home he lives in, located in the scenic town of Pléneuf-Val-André. When the elderly turn up missing or wander off, the outcome is not usually as pleasant as what happened in this case.

A woman alerted staff at Les Jardins d’Arcadie, a nursing home in north-western France, when she was not able to find her father on the grounds. She visits him each week and was alarmed to discover that he was missing and unaccounted for. After she and the staff searched the property inside and out without finding a clue as to where the elderly man could be, police were called in to help.

The senior citizen, whose name is being withheld to protect his privacy, was last seen dressed in a pair of blue jeans, a blue vest, and a cap.

When the police arrived on the scene, another thorough search of the grounds was conducted. The man's daughter was frantic with worry over where her missing father could be. The staff at Les Jardins d’Arcadie was also very concerned for his safety.

After a while, the police tracked the missing resident down. As it turns out, he hadn't gotten too far away from the nursing home. He was in the midst of enjoying a pleasant day and had absolutely no idea his journey out had caused such an uproar for his daughter or his care takers.

The elderly grandfather was found strolling through a nearby park, walking arm-in-arm with his sweetheart. One is never too old for romance, even at 93 years of age. His family was unaware that he was dating anyone, but greatly relieved by the turn of events. Thankfully, no harm had befallen the escapee from the French nursing home or his lovely girlfriend.
