    St. Lucie County law enforcement has been searching for more than 17 hours for an 83-year-old woman with Alzheimer's disease who was last seen at 3:30 p.m. Friday at Broadmoor Assisted Living in Fort Pierce.

    Police responded to the facility at 200 Dixie Lane in Fort Pierce around 6 p.m. Friday in reference to a missing resident. Officers were told that Millie Jordan wandered away from the facility between 3:30 and 4 p.m.

    Millie Jordan, 83, is described as a white female, 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing 168 pounds. She wears glasses and has gray and blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a multi-colored shirt and black capri-like pants.


    Fort Pierce Police and the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office officials searched the area for Jordan. Helicopters and two of the department's canine officers were being used to assist with the search.

    That poor little thing. She probably doesn't have a clue to where she is at.
    I wonder why they waited until 6:00 to call the police when she went missing between 3:30 and 4:00? She's elderly to be out there by herself. I hope she has been found by now.

    I can't find any updates on Ms. Jordan. She does not seem to be listed as missing with FDLE either.

    No new leads in search for missing Fort Pierce woman

    April 18, 2006

    <SNIP>

    Police have no new leads but are still searching for an 83-year-old woman with Alzheimer's disease who wandered away from the Broadmoor, an assisted-living facility at 200 Dixieland Drive on Friday afternoon.

    Jordan apparently stopped at the Rent-A-Center at 2514 S. U.S. 1 about 7:30 p.m. Friday to use the restroom, then headed north.

    "She had no extra clothes or a purse," said Chris Lundstrom, president of The Broadmoor. "She has Alzheimer's, but she's very independent and she communicates very well."

    Lundstrom said Jordan might be trying to go to her hometown of Kalamazoo, Mich.

    "But she has trouble orienting herself," he said. "If you asked her where she is, she might not know she was still in Fort Pierce."

    Missing patient's body found

    Wednesday, April 19, 2006

    After a five-day hunt for a missing Fort Pierce Alzheimer's patient, a search team found her body Wednesday evening.

    A group led by a Fort Pierce police detective, a family friend and three St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office Explorers found 83-year-old Millie Jordan's body at a Florida East Coast Railway mechanical maintenance compound. A friend of Jordan's son made the discovery between railroad tracks and some woods south of Indian Hills Golf Course.

    Police spokeswoman Audria Moore said Jordan's body showed no outward signs of trauma or foul play.

    How very sad. At least the family has found her. There should have been a better way to keep track of this Alzheimer's patient.

    There are tracking devices that can and IMO should be used on Alzheimer's patients. This happens to often and with a tracking device they would have found her. Sad very sad.

    I agree sleuthin4fun but unfortunaetly it happens way to frequently. I have participated in way to many searches for Alzheimer's patients who have wandered off from facilities.
