    30 June 09

    Detectives are continuing to search for a missing 89-year-old woman who wandered away from her home in the 3300 block of Cliff Drive last weekend.

    The woman, Metta Thomsen, suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, authorities said, and was last seen at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. She was wearing blue denim pants, a blue shirt, white tennis shoes and a tan coat.

    Police described Thomsen as 5-foot-7, with a medium build and gray, collar-length hair. Police officers, search-and-rescue teams and police dogs searched throughout the weekend for the 89-year-old, but have failed to locate her.

    Still missing.


    As of Monday noon, July 20, son Mike informed me that Metta has still not been found.

    The police has begun their standard investigative procedure for missing persons after a certain period of time - starting with a search warrant on Metta's family.
