Praying that the great Ray Taliaferro is found okay. He has been missing in the Paducah, Kentucky area since November 10. Ray has been battling dementia for a while so he may not be certain where he is. If you’re in that area and you have any information, please call 270-444-8548 pic.twitter.com/KT0Ox81Bc7

More on the search on Taliaferro. Plus a Witness testimony on how Ray was like in his last appearance.
The conversation pretty much repeated itself. It seemed like he had forgotten what he was saying or had forgotten that he had told me that,” said Henry. “Reintroduced himself several times. One thing he did say that made me think that definitely, he didn’t know what year it was, as he told me that ‘Obama is a great President, and I’m pretty sure he’s going to get reelected for the second term’.”
After talking with Taliaferro for about 15 minutes, Henry informed Taliaferro that he had to take a phone call. Henry said Taliaferro then walked out.
Henry said he had thought Taliaferro was a local man who was just out on a stroll. He recalled that Taliaferro — who was wearing a black coat, black sock hat, black pants, and dark shoes — was well-kempt and upbeat.

“There were no indications that he may have been in trouble or someone was after him or anything like that,” said Henry. “He was very courteous, very kind.”
Still, Henry said he was concerned for Taliaferro’s mental state. So Henry looked online for Taliaferro’s family members and found the man’s son on social media. They communicated back and forth before Henry learned from investigators that Taliaferro was reported missing.
Taliaferro had still lived in San Francisco but was in rural Massac County, Illinois, with his wife on Nov. 10 to look at a property she inherited. The wife told deputies that Taliaferro suddenly drove away. Hours later, Taliaferro was spotted in Paducah at three locations: the Mellow Mushroom pizzeria, the Independence Bank across the street, and the nearby West End Baptist Church.
