    E - I'd give the local police station a ring and just let them know. Elderly man may have escaped dementia ward. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    I always have at least kid in the car so no way in hell would I pull up and talk to anyone, but in the situation you've described I couldn't do nothing.

    TBH this happened to me once. I was driving through an industrial area in Sydney on a Sunday afternoon so it was like a ghost town with none of the businesses open but here was this little old lady wandering down the street. It didn't sit right with me so I called the police to let them know and as it turned out she had dementia and had wandered off from her sons house. They had been searching for her for hours and sunset was only an hour away. They were oh so glad for the report I gave.

    He was old-ish, but nothing else seemed odd. Seemed like it was just his chosen attire.
