Gee, Elena looks so good in the photos released of her! In the surveillance capture of her entering Grocery Outlet the day before she looks to be walking tall and with purpose, holding onto her shoulder purse. And in the other photo I’ve seen, she has a bright smile, looking happy and alert. Hard to remember that she has dementia when I look at the pictures of her.

In any case, she looks like she could have walked far—looks very able-bodied. Missing for over 3 weeks now…not looking good, is it…

‘We Are Remaining Hopeful’: Family of 84-Year-Old Missing Fallbrook Grandmother Speaks Out – NBC 7 San Diego (nbcsandiego.com)
[...]

Cataldo told NBC 7, the two argued about the placement of a picture frame before she stormed out of the house and didn’t come back.

"For now we just have to focus on the idea that she left on foot and that she could have wandered off anywhere in this area," said Swart.

[...]

"We're so grateful that they just keep trying and they're still looking and everybody who is reaching out and, you know, in any way that they can, we're really, we're hopeful," said Swart.

I just received this from the San Diego Sheriffs’s Office-some good pictures of Elena:

Who's the man in this video?
??? Ramon on the Promenade? There have been several reported sightings but I don't remember anyone mentioned at Grocery Outlet. MOO

UPDATE: Husband of missing Fallbrook woman shares his story as search continues - Village News
[...]

According to Private Investigator Tony Campbell said that Eric from Fallbrook Auto Works, who is Roy's regular mechanic, said he said he spotted her Wednesday on the East side of Main Street.

"Eric thought that was between 1 and 2 p.m. and she was headed north on Main Ave," Campbell said. "He was 100% sure it was her. He did not know if she was carrying a purse."

Campbell also spoke to a gentleman named Ramon on the Promenade who said he talked to her the same day.

Campbell talked to three LDS missionaries who were out walking downtown and they said that one of their peers had seen the woman yesterday near Fallbrook High School.

I wondered earlier if Elena would accept a ride from someone. She could be anywhere with no idea how to make contact with her family, even if she could. I mention this because I discovered this evening that an older woman accepting a ride from a stranger is not far-fetched.

My very dear husband, who is nicer than I am about doing these things, called up a widowed friend of ours, about 71, just to see how she’s doing. She’s in good shape and walks all over our small town. She told him, as if it was totally normal, that a man in a car with out-of-state plates pulled up next to her as she walked down her fairly steep residential street a few blocks from Main and asked if she needed a ride. She accepted!!! She was just going a few blocks to the library and he dropped her off, thankfully. She didn’t mention anyone else being in the car.

My husband just listened and didn’t react. When he told me, I screeched “She did what??!!” After I recovered, I begged him to call her soon and tell her that we had been thinking about how dangerous this was. If the man had bad intentions, she could have been long gone before any of us would have realized it. Not only would this be awful for her, but it would put her friends here and her brother in another country thru h-ll. My dh is not someone to rock the boat, but he agreed to do it. Better him than me! I’d screech at her!

To my knowledge, she does not have early dementia, but she has always had a rather childish, self-involved way about her, even though she handles her life well enough. This really shook me up and I thought of Elena immediately.

That is very possible, I agree!

I will sheepishly and guiltily admit to being on the other end once, giving a ride to someone I didn’t really know. :eek: It was a fellow hiker I struck up a conversation once with. He was turned around and needed to get back with his group at the adjacent park before the bus was to leave. I gave him directions for the fastest way, which included walking down a street. I was finishing my hike and was driving off in my car when saw him walking hurriedly down the street I told him about. So, I offered to drop him off near the park entrance, which he gratefully accepted. I guess you are right, that wasn’t very safe practice for either me OR him. :oops: At the time, I had felt his worry at getting back in time and I guess that feeling is what led me to want to help him.

Well, you had at least had some prior contact with him before offering a ride. Sometimes we try to do the right thing for a person in need. :) In our friend’s case it was random and she didn’t need to accept a ride. In Elena’s case, if she was picked up, she may have thought she knew the person. It’s such a mystery! Where are you Elena? :(
