Today’s Coloradoan features a detailed story on Mr. Gosden’s disappearance and included
some thoughts from professionals like Angel Jones. She held a frontal temporal lobe dementia group at ElderHaus, which George attended. She believes the veteran reverted to a military mindset, waiting for cavalry to come rescue him.
“Frontal temporal lobe dementia, it makes life very hard. You change from being the person you are,” she said.
His family last saw him at his home in the 2800 block of Eastborough Drive in Fort Collins the evening of July 5.
