Veteran, Missing for 10 Years, Reunited With Family in San Diego County

A San Diego native tearfully reunited with his brother's family Saturday, almost 10 years after he was reported missing in Yuma, Arizona.

Thomas “Randy” Gatewood, 79, went missing from his Yuma home in 2007. The Air Force Veteran had been diagnosed with dementia. 

"It's almost unbelievable," said Randy's brother, Gene. "I hate to say it, but I thought he was probably deceased. That's the story I've been telling family and friends for some time."

Investigators found Randy in the skilled nursing facility Bella Vista Health Center in Lemon Grove, where Gene and his family met Randy in a tearful reunion. - NBC
