Ann Arbor police just told me they have no new leads on her whereabouts .

I feel for this woman's safety and sympathize with friends and family for the anguish they must be feeling. Many years ago, I knew a family, the aged father had worsening symptoms of Alzheimer's. He had somehow found the hidden keys to his car and had driven off to parts unknown in the wee hours when everyone else was asleep. Neither the police nor the family heard anything until late that evening (he'd been missing for over 12 hrs.). A woman called and reported that the man had been asking for directions at a gas station where she'd happened to stop. She - quick thinking - invited him home to have dinner with her husband and kids. During dinner, they'd gotten him talking about his (adult) daughter and got her phone number after he handed over his wallet for them to check. If not for that unlikely combination of coincidence, alertness and good luck - this man could have gotten much farther than the estimated 100 miles he'd driven. So yes, be alert and expect the unexpected: any of us might run across such lost persons in unlikely circumstances.

I hope that we hear good news about her soon.

What kind of "meds" are you talking about?


Sat, Dec 29, 2012 : 2:54 p.m.

Again. Mental illness. We need to open up some state hospitals to help these people.

I really hope they find her. Grandma and reindeer keep popping into my head. Sigh. Good luck. Without the meds anything can happen. Good luck.

Non sequitur, anyone?

Perhaps it has to do with a mental disorder, but who says she can't just go missing? This reminds me of this guy they had found who crashed his car off of Plymouth rd. and was sitting there for well over a month, where was his missing person alert?

maybe she disorientated and confused like last missing person? remember the man? in fact many people have gone missing.
