    WA - Ethel O'Neil, 89, Marysville, 16 July 2014



    http://www.arlingtontimes.com/news/267956481.html

    An 89-year-old Everett woman was last seen in Marysville at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 16.

    Ethel O'Neil was driving a steel blue 1987 Chevy Nova with the Washington plates ADP6803...

    Her son, Patrick, said she has dementia and got lost while on her way to the Everett Mall. She was last seen in Marysville asking for directions to the mall.

    Still missing.

    On Friday, a Washington State Patrol airplane was used to trace a possible route O'Neil might have taken and to look for any signs she could have driven off the road.

    The plane, equipped with special search cameras, followed Highway 9, headed east to Granite Falls and flew about 10 miles up the Mountain Loop Highway. Tall trees along the highway made the aerial search challenging.

    “Who knows how large the search area could be?” said trooper Ryan Santuff, a pilot with the State Patrol's aviation unit. “It's a tough one for law enforcement.”

    Poor Ethel. Was hoping she'd be found safe by now. Such an adorable woman.

    My mom, who passed not long ago, was still driving at Ethel's age and one day she got confused and drove on the wrong side of the road. A HP stopped her and she lost her driver's license. She walked to the grocery store and post office because she didn't want us to know what had happened. She took the driver's test on her own twice and failed. Ethel's story makes me so sad because I think of my mom and how scared Ethel probably when she got lost. I hope she will be found safe but so much time has gone by. She looks like such a sweetheart! Ethel, where are you??

    "Her family believes O'Neil, who has early signs of dementia, might have become lost. She was last seen in the 6700 block of 88th Place in Marysville, asking for a map and directions back to Everett.

    http://www.heraldnet.com/article/201...after-2-weeks-

    The 6700 block of 88th Place appears to be all residential. I wonder if she just stopped at someone's house and asked for a map and directions home? She was on her way to the Everett Mall but went north to Maryville instead of south to the mall. Maybe she continued north of Marysville instead of south to Everett. After reading these sad stories if an elderly person seems confused and lost I am going to make sure they get home if I have to follow them. Not blaming who tried to help her that day, but this has taught me to take the time to physically help them get home. Dementia is a horrible thing.

    "EVERETT, Wash. -- A Marysville man told police he's convinced the elderly woman who stopped by his yard asking for directions is the same woman who's been missing for a week."

    So Ethel did ask a homeowner for directions.

    Nancy O’Neil, Ethel’s daughter-in-law, said the $5,000 reward will spur people to look for the woman’s car. “We all believe if we find the car, we find Ethel and that’s why we’re offering this reward,” Nancy O’Neil said.

    Just approximately where she was found and her possible route from Marysville. What in the world happened??
    So sad!! She was just a few miles from home.

    While the Snohomish County Medical Examiner has yet to determine the cause of death, O'Neil's disappearance provided a reminder of the importance of tracking bracelets for vulnerable people. It also kindled discussion about whether the state has an effective public notification system when someone with dementia or Alzheimer's goes missing...

    Washington has the "Endangered Missing Person Advisory Plan" for people believed to be in danger because of age, health, or mental or physical disability.

    To date, it has been an underused system, Washington State Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins said. "We have some educating to do, including with law enforcement and the public," he said. "We are not at all shy about admitting we have more work to do."

    Investigators believe Ethel backed her car into those bushes. I wonder if she got stuck and couldn't figure out how to get out. Once my elderly mother who had dementia pulled into her garage. Her car doors were locked. She panicked and didn't realize she could unlock them from the inside so she crawled out the window. She was probably in her upper 80s at the time! Hopefully an autopsy will tell if she had a heart attack, whether she succumbed in the heat locked inside her car, or something else.
