Police on alert for missing woman with possible Alzheimer’s
April 29, 2013
The Southfield Police Department issued a release asking for the public’s assistance in locating a missing resident April 29.
Ella Michelle Andrews, 52, was last seen at her group home, located at 27075 Pebblebrook St., on April 23.
According to the Lt. Nick Loussia of the Southfield Police Department, she has not been in contact with her friends or family since that date and has possibly been seen wandering around on foot in local communities.
“Her family believes she’s experiencing the onset of Alzheimer’s disease,” Lousssia said, adding that they just moved her into the home a couple weeks ago. “We think she just wandered away from her home.”
Witnesses have reported possibly seeing Andrews in the area of 11 Mile and Inkster roads in Southfield, and also in the area of 11 Mile and Middlebelt in Farmington Hills, Loussia said.
Both times, residents called into local police stations about the wandering woman. It is believed that she does have access to a cellphone and maybe a car.
Andrews was last seen wearing a tan coat that has a fur-lined hood, according to the report. She is a black woman with medium complexion, approximately 5 feet 2 inches tall and 170 pounds. She has brown eyes and short, salt-and-pepper straight hair.
According to police, she has been entered into the Law Enforcement Information Network as a Missing Person-Endangered.
Loussia suggests that if anyone spots Andrews they should keep an eye on her and call police immediately. Anyone with any information regarding this missing person is asked to contact the Southfield Police Department at (248) 796-5500.
