No picture??

It would help the public if there were a picture provided of this woman. The discription could be any number of people in this state.

Probably not a recent one , okay ?
Think ; 72 , old , wandering around with dementia , confused , side of the road or in the woods , trying to get home or to a friend's house they'ya in Turner . Go look . Volunteer . She can't have gone far walking presuming there is no foul play involved
Dementia and other mental illnesses ( Pick's Disease , Altzheimers , schizophenia , psychosis , panic attackes, etc. ) strike women in a greater percentage than men in these us of a , ? about seven percent (7%)
