BLUF: Should I reschedule a missed interview with the #1 candidate for a job?

I had a 3rd round interview scheduled with a candidate this morning and the candidate no-showed. The position would be an individual contributor and a skip level in my department. The first round was a phone interview with the supervisor, the second round was face-to-face panel interviews with the supervisor and potential peers, and this round was one-on-one with me, via Zoom.

I sent an email asking if he was going to join me and the response indicated was that he misunderstood the time and date of the interview. Reading between the lines, I'm led to believe that he is not technically savy and that written communication is weak. The candidate is #1 because of his previous results and his ability to adapt to and excel in an evolving situation.

Should I reschedule?
