Police are still searching for a 74-year-old Duluth woman with dementia who has been missing for months. Now, authorities are asking hunters and hikers to keep their eyes peeled.
Dale Elizabeth Gerard was last seen boarding a Duluth Transit Authority bus in the area of Elinor St. and Grand Avenue on July 20th.
DTA video shows Gerard getting off the bus at Piedmont Ave. and 7th St. and then walked southbound on Piedmont into the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
She slipped past security measures at her assisted living facility, Wesley Residence, in the past.. Those measures were in place because she has been diagnosed with dementia and requires prescribed medication, according to her son.
Police issued a press release on Tuesday, asking anyone that is participating Duluth’s city bow hunt or anyone hiking in the area, to keep an eye out for Gerard.
Police said Dale Gerard has distinctive red marks on her chin, nose and cheeks. Authorities said she was wearing black dress pants, a flowered blouse and a pink sweater when she went missing. She is 5'5" and weighs 155 pounds. She has brown eyes and auburn-red hair.
If you know anything about Gerard's whereabouts, call 911.
