FORT COLLINS, Colo. — An Air Force helicopter will be used to help look for a missing Fort Collins man, authorities said Monday.

George Gosden, 64, was reported missing by his family on Saturday. Gosden suffers from dementia, police said.

The helicopter will come from the F.E. Warren Air Base in Cheyenne, Wyo.

“Residents of Fort Collins and surrounding communities can expect to see a low flying military helicopter while the search is being conducted,” said Fort Collins Police spokesman Matt Johnson.

Gosden is in good physical health and frequently enjoys spending long periods of time walking in the yard of his home, police said. Because of this, police worry he could be a significant distance from his home.

Police asked residents to check their property and any outbuildings for Gosden.

Gosden is a white male with brown hair, standing six feet tall and weighing approximately 190 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white shirt, gray pajama pants and black shoes. He wears a Medic-Alert bracelet which will assist in identifying him.

If you have information which might assist in locating Gosden, contact Fort Collins Police Services at 970-221-6540.
