Miami police are searching for Sara Walker, a 76-year-old woman who suffers from dementia. They need your help.

Walker disappeared from the area of Northwest 10th Avenue and 4th Street on Tuesday, according to her sister Ethel Williams.

Walker was supposed to be driven home from a canceled appointment at Pasteur Medical Center at 3721 NW Seventh St. The driver who works for the center says that he dropped her off at 3:30 p.m., Williams said.

Williams says that doesn’t add up.

When Walker was dropped off at another location instead of her house, she asked to use a man’s phone to call her sister at 2:50 p.m. The man wanted to drop Walker off at her home but he was in a company vehicle at the time, according to Williams.

The man then told Walker to cross the drawbridge on Northwest 10th Avenue and 4th Street to get to a bus stop where she could ride the 77 bus home.

Williams has been searching the area since.

Walker was last seen wearing a blue sweater and long black pants. She has red hair, stands 5-foot-11, and weighs about 100 pounds.

Anyone with information on Walker’s whereabouts should call Miami police at 305-603-6300.
