MADISON (WKOW) -- Last contact with 82-year-old Junior Fowble, of Newton, Iowa, was early Wednesday morning near the intersection of Highways 12 and 18.

Newton police tell 27 News Mr. Fowble's wife went to the hospital around 12:30 Wednesday morning and he was headed there to meet up with her.  He never showed up.

Police say Mr. Fowble's vehicle plate had been run by Dane County.  They believe he may have run out of gas and was assisted.

Mr. Fowble is described as having dementia.  He is 5'8" and 190 pounds.  He has brown eyes and is bald.  He may be driving a 2003 red Chevy S-10.
