    MA - Elga Crespo, 67, Lowell, 25 Oct 2015

    Elga Crespo is originally from Puerto Rico and she's been living with her daughters family in the Redwood Terrace townhouse community in Lowell for more than 2 years. Around dinner time Sunday, she went for a walk and never returned home.

    The 67-year-old grandmother has severe intellectual disabilities and she functions with the mind of an 8-year-old.

    Lowell police have checked all the nearby businesses, wooded areas and even vacant apartments and homes.

    Lowell Police said, "She has a history of walking off before and she covered some good distance in the past so that's one of the issues we have now. We don't know what areas to contain."

    The 67-year-old woman who has been missing since Sunday night had still not been found as of Friday night, according to police.
    (...)
    There have been more than two dozen possible sightings throughout the week, including one in Somerville and another in Nashua, N.H.

    "Obviously, none has panned out, but we're still getting reports and we're checking them all out," Lowell police Capt. Tim Crowley said in an email Friday night. "We are still putting out Elga Crespo's information and still have hope she will be found."
    (...)
    Family and friends of Crespo have been to Westford, Tyngsboro and even southern New Hampshire as they head out in teams of two to search for her.

    An intensive search for Elga Crespo, missing since Oct. 25, on Thursday morning failed to provide any new information on her whereabouts.

    Investigators are continuing to question family and re-canvas people they've already spoken to, but unless a new tip comes in, Lowell police's ground search for Crespo has concluded.

    Chelmsford police say body found in woods could be that of missing Lowell woman

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    Yes, sadly the body has been ID'd as Elga:

    An autopsy confirmed that body was that of Crespo

    I know this is an unlikely scenario, but I so hate the thought of her feeling lost and scared, that I can only hope that she just felt tired and laid down to rest

    It was mentioned in one of the news stories that she was diabetic. If that's the case, a likely cause of her death would have been hypoglycemia. As someone with chronic low blood sugar myself, I can tell you the symptoms would include feeling a bit nauseous and dizzy, then shaky as if you were cold, followed by just feeling sluggish and sleepy. When I was younger I didn't even realize these were dangerous signs. So if she really did "have the mental capacity of an 8-year-old", she in all probability did indeed just feel tired and lay down to rest, and never woke up. I don't think she died in distress. Or at least, my heart doesn't think so.
