A Bronx man suffering from dementia has been missing for nearly a month, according to his family.
Friends and family are desperately searching for a missing Bronx man with dementia.
Derrick Cooke, 68, has been missing since Feb. 25. He was last seen in the area of East Tremont Avenue.
His nephew tells News 12 the two were walking together. When he turned and looked behind him, he realized his uncle was gone.
