On their way to Paradise, California, Edison Cook, 81, and his wife Isabel Cook, 73, took a wrong turn and ended up lost, separated, dehydrated and disoriented. Because of the couple’s current condition, details of their misadventures are sketchy.
On Thanksgiving evening, the exhausted couple found themselves lost on a dark road and decided to sleep in their car. Before her husband awoke, Isabel had left the car in search of a restroom.
During Edison Cook’s search for his wife, their four-door Acura became stuck in a ditch on the side of Highway 58 in Santa Margarita.
On Friday around 10:00 a.m., a passer-by found Edison Cook on the side of the road and drove the confused man to the Santa Margarita Fire Department. A second passer-by found Isabel Cook on the side of the road thirty miles from where her husband was discovered.
