McALLEN -Winter Texan Frank Wadge is frantically searching for his home. He parked his RV in a mobile home park three days ago, but he can't remember which park.
Wadge said his main concern is his medications. He has gone three days without them.
"I'm feeling it a lot more," Wadge said. He recently underwent open-heart surgery and takes 14 pills a day.
"Some are for pain, some are for heart regulation," he said.
His prescription medications are locked in his Winnebago.
"Now I suddenly realize I don't know where it is," he said of the RV.
Wadge said he followed someone from a McAllen Wal-Mart parking lot near Expressway 83 to the mobile home park. He doesn't remember which way they drove. He later left the park in his car and lost his bearings.
"This is a puzzle we want to help him solve," McAllen Fire Department Capt. Mike Hernandez said.
Firefighters are helping Wadge retrace his routes.
Wadge said frustration is giving way to desperation.
Wadge's RV is a 2004 white-and-gold Winnebago with Manitoba license plates.
Anyone with information on the RV's location or who may recognize Wadge is asked to call the McAllen Fire Department at 956-681-2501.
