An 82-year-old Maple Ridge woman was found safe soon after the RCMP asked for the public’s help in locating her whereabouts.
Dorthy MacLean was reported missing after she walked away from her residence in the 12200-block of 224th Street.
When Ridge Meadows RCMP first issued a release on July 20 about the missing local resident they expressed concern for her safety.
She is likely confused and has no sense of direction, explained RCMP Const. Julie Klaussner, noting she won’t likely ask for assistance.
“We are extremely concerned for her safety,” she added. “She takes essential medications, does not have any identification or any money with her.”
MacLean is described as Caucasian, 5 ft. 1 in. tall, and about 115 pounds. She has black hair with a balding middle part.
She was reported wearing a pale blue blazer, black slacks, and white runners when she went missing.
“MacLean said she was going to visit family in Newfoundland. However, she no longer has family there,” the officer explained, believing she will respond to her name.
Anyone who spotted MacLean was asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251, CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.solvecrime.ca.
