    The Walnut Hills woman left without a car, without her clothes and without money. Her food stamp card was last used September 9.
    She has a criminal history of crack-cocaine use and prostitution.

    Dorothy Douglas had been staying in Westwood with a friend. Her family says she was a daily crack cocaine user, and no matter how much she strayed, she always stopped by her mother's and kept in touch with the family. She usually walked the streets in Walnut Hills. She had no car and few possessions.

    Ms. Douglas has two children and two grandchildren. Years ago, she had a steady job in the nursing field. She enjoyed homemaking and gardening. Her family said her life hit a downward spiral when her husband was killed in 1982 in a stabbing that was never solved.

    1998 article:

    The heartache of having a missing child is bad enough. What's worse for Pauline Harden is that no one seems to care.

    Her daughter, Dorothy Douglas, turned 43 on Thursday. There was no celebration. Only waiting and praying...

    Her life hit a downward spiral when her husband was killed in 1982 in a stabbing that was never solved. The next year, her brother was presumed drowned in Tennessee, and his body was never found. Her family has contacted her friends, hung out in the drug circles Dorothy Douglas frequented, and posted fliers in churches and bars.

    But just because Dorothy Douglas was a drug addict doesn't make her family love her any less.

    "She's a person outside of being an addict," said Lisa Douglas, a recovering addict herself. "She's a person that people love, and we want to know if she's OK."
