Missing Langley woman found in grocery store

A local woman with dementia was located in Surrey.

A Saturday search for a missing Langley woman suffering from Alzheimers ended happily.

The 69-year-old vanished from her home in the Langley Meadows area at about 9 a.m., and was last seen before her disappearance by her caregiver.

Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue were mobilized to look for the woman, and police helped out and the Air One helicopter was in the area to assist. Notices went out to public transit services to be on the lookout for the woman.

However, the woman was found that evening unharmed.

“She was located at a grocery store in Surrey, refusing to leave at closing time,” said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

She was found at about 1 a.m.

According to Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue, she was taken to hospital to be checked over but was in good condition.
