Storyline

One of the "Your True Adventure" series featuring reporter Floyd Gibbons, this entry recreates the story of an old man listed among the missing persons. His daughter and her husband pursue the search for over a year, with no trace of dear old dad. A flashback segment details how the old man was hit by a car, lost his memory, and wandered around securing odd jobs. Finally, he arrives in a home for aged people, but all the efforts of the doctors and nurses fail to revive his memory. Then, an item in the paper leads the family to the home, and the sight of his loved ones brings back his memory. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
