Chicago Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a 79-year-old woman with dementia who went missing Friday morning from the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side.

Wanda Moore walked out of a home on the 5200 block of South Green at 8 a.m. Friday and has not been heard from since, according to a high risk missing person alert issued Friday afternoon.

Authorities say Moore should be able to remember her name and last address in the 8ooo block of South Elizabeth.

She is described as a 5-foot-5, 150-pound black woman with brown hair, brown eyes and a dark complexion. She was last seen wearing a leopard-print nightshirt, light pink shorts and white slippers.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
