We would like to send out a very deserved THANK YOU to an employee of the Maverick gas station on Highway 68 in Golden Valley.
On Thursday (5/26) at 8:15 AM, Deputies were called to the Maverick in Golden Valley in reference to a welfare check. Employees at Maverick noticed an elderly male subject was parked at a fuel pump for approximately 15 minutes and appeared to be confused. The elderly male subject walked into the store and employees asked if he was doing good to which he replied he was.
Employees noticed the elderly male subject appeared to be unable to start the car. Employees called the Sheriff’s Office to have a welfare check done on male subject. Upon their arrival, deputies found the subject was coherent but appeared to be slightly lost and confused. Medical personnel were requested and found the elderly male subject was medically fine and refused further treatment.
Family members of the elderly male subject were contacted via phone. It was found that the elderly male subject, 71 year old Everett Ercolani of Las Vegas, was last known to be in Las Vegas and was supposed to take his elderly wife to a hospital for an appointment. Ercolani advised he had dropped her off and was headed home but ultimately ended up in Golden valley.
Family members advised that Ercolani was recently diagnosed with having early signs of dementia and family members were working on his care and living situations. Family arrived and drove Erconali and his vehicle back to Las Vegas safely.
The employee noticed an issue with the male subject and called for help instead of disregarding the situation. In retrospect, if he would have left the gas station, he could have ended up further away from home, lost in the desert and/or involved in a collision.
