Avery authorities quickly mounted a search late yesterday afternoon after a 72-year old man left a Grandfather Golf & Country Club residence and disappeared.  The man, suffering some sort of dementia, was missed by family within five minutes of his leaving the home, and within 20 minutes, searchers from a number of Avery emergency agencies—including fire departments and rescue squads—were scouring the development, trying to beat darkness to find the man.  A call went out to both the Johnson City Medical Center to send a WINGS Rescue chopper and to the NC State Patrol for another, but the man was found—apparently OK, a distance from the home, but still inside the Grandfather area.
