My prayers that she will be found unharmed and quickly. Prayers for her family and friends. May her guardian angle, and all the Saints lead her home. Dear Lord send a host of angles to protect this dear lady, and keep her safe, keep her warm and comforted and lead her home. In the name of the Father, the son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen

At some point during the progression of Alzheimer's, wandering becomes a huge problem that needs to be addressed. Hoping this woman is found safe and that her family then takes the steps to ensure that this won't happen again. Sounds like she is in need of being in a care facility. My beloved mother passed away from complications of Alzheimer's just after her 89th birthday. Watching what this monster of a disease did to her during the last 8 years of her life was absolutely heartbreaking. Really lovely prayer, Julie. Thank you.

@Michael: I agree with you, however, authorities have not yet released any photo. If they do, we will add it to the article.

God will lead her home. Shes just lost. Does her immediate family have any inputs as far as when and where (location) she was last accountrd for? My grandma is an 85 year old russian woman, and if she wandered off I would be searching day and nite for her!

Any news yet on if they've found this woman? As much as we tried to keep my Dad who had Alzheimer's in the house, he did get out twice and wandered off, once he was brought home by a neighborhood friend and second time brought home by the APD. Thank goodness there were wonderful people around to help us. I pray that the search for this woman has the same outcome.
