Oh dear! What a lovely lady.
This really caught my eye as my maiden name is Lawson and my dear Dad is 83. I can only imagine how frantic her family must be.

I'm really concerned about Ms. Lawson. I really wish her family would have gotten CUE involved earlier.

WILMINGTON, NC – Crime Stoppers and the Wilmington Police Department are offering a reward up to $10,000 for information leading to the whereabouts of an 83-year-old woman who went missing at the beginning of November.
Alma Lawson, 83, was reported missing to police by her son after she didn’t return home from a friend’s house November 4, 2012. Lawson’s family filed a missing persons report with the CUE Center for Missing Persons about two weeks later.
Family members say Lawson is believed to show early signs of dementia. Due to her age and physical limitations, police say she has been considered to be endangered since the day she went missing.
The Wilmington Police Department initiated an exhaustive search of the entire area, including the nearby creek and wooded areas. WPD’s K-9 and mounted units participated, as did the SABLE helicopter.
Other organizations came in to assist, including the Wilmington and New Hanover County Fire Departments, New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, Brunswick Search and Rescue and Roxye Ann Marshall, urban search and rescue K-9 handler.
Lawson was last seen wearing a lavender shirt, black pants and a black jacket.
