An 86-year-old Alzheimer’s patient was found to be missing yesterday when her husband checked to see if she was in bed. Clara Seed, described as 5-foot-6, 130 pounds with long gray hair, gray eyes and last seen wearing a blue sweat suit, wasn’t in bed when her elderly husband checked on her at their home at 1214 Shoreline Drive about 6 p.m. yesterday. He called 911.
Officers scoured the area, contacting neighbors and searching yards until about 10 p.m. last night. All Mesa businesses were searched, according to police, and their employees questioned, but no results were turned up.
The search continued this morning with canines from the sheriff’s department, which led a search team to look in a specific area, but nothing resulted from the search. Police at this time are treating the incident as a missing persons case. There is no evidence of foul play or suspicious activity at this point, according to Sgt. Lorenzo Duarte.
Police are asking anyone who sees Seed to call 911 immediately, and if anyone has any useful information, they can call the Watch Commander’s Office at (805) 897-2376 or the Public Information Office at (805) 897-2332.
