MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A Montgomery family is pleading for help as the search for their loved one stretches into the third week.

"Been a lot of sleepless nights just wondering if he's being taken care of, hoping for the best," said Stan Talley, who is continuing to look for his brother.

Brent Talley, 67, walked out of his home on Nov. 22 around 9 a.m.

In just a thirty-minute time span between family members switching to take care of Brent, he was gone.

"It's stressful for the family as a whole, but it's more stressful for my mother. She's at work and she's wondering where he's at, when she's here [home] at night she's wondering where he's at; the temperature's dropping and we haven't seen him," explains Brent Talley Jr.

Family members say Talley has seizures and hasn't had his medicine in over two weeks since he left. He also suffers from dementia. We're told he has walked off before but has never gone missing this long.

"We've had people in the Ann Street area, they've seen him. They've seen him at the Burger King, they've seen him at that Entec, they've seen him over at the Stay Lodge," says Brent Talley Jr.

The Montgomery Police Department confirms it has responded to several recent calls of possible sightings of Talley but none have resulted in him being located.

The family is hopeful Christmas will come early this year and they will have Talley home once again.

"That would be one of the biggest gifts we as a family have ever received, just having him back at home," said Stan.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office does have a free program called "Project Lifesaver" offering tracking bracelets and ID bracelets to those who are diagnosed with Alzheimer's, dementia, or another disease which may cause people to wander.

Talley did have a bracelet, but family members tell us he took it off before leaving the house.

Police are also still searching for another Montgomery man who has been missing since Nov. 13.

Willie James McCall has Alzheimer's and was last seen walking in a wooded area near his home near Narrow Lane Road in south Montgomery.

There are rewards for information that leads to finding both McCall and Talley.
