His niece, Lisa Cooper, says Burton has dementia, diabetes, and bipolar disorder. He needs medication to keep his head clear and insulin for his diabetes.

Cooper says her uncle was seeking treatment at the Durham VA after grieving the loss of a close friend and was due to be released from their care before he went missing.
