CARROLLTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A grandfather with memory issues and his 5-year-old grandson were missing for several hours Monday night.

Police said Vincent Nguyen, 80, picked up his grandson Victor Nguyen from preschool around 3:00 p.m. and the family had not seen or heard from them since. It was around midnight when the pair was spotted at a gas station in Hudson Oaks — just outside Weatherford.
