LOS ANGELES — In October 2016, a 55-year-old retired software engineer with early-onset Alzheimer’s wandered out of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as her husband used the restroom. Nancy Paulikas hasn’t been seen since.
Kirk Moody still spends time nearly every day looking for her. “There hasn’t been a single trace,” he says.
Her disappearance and his anguish have prompted what may be the nation’s most ambitious system for tracking down people with cognitive conditions that make them prone to roaming — and getting lost.
