That’s the building my boyfriend lived in until just last year. I’ll have to mention this to him. Glad she was found!

Tell every traffic enforcement cop in the area to put away their ticket book for half a day and pretend this woman is an illegally parked car and find her.

So sad. My mom had dementia and this was always my fear. I hope she is found safe and sound.
