Kim "Kay" Gray | Braidwood police

A 73-year-old woman reported missing earlier this month from her southwest suburban Braidwood home was found at a Chicago government office.

Kim “Kay” Gray, who has dementia, was last seen about 8 p.m. on June 11 when she went to bed in the 100 block of Small Mouth Lane in the Shadow Lakes community, according to Braidwood police. When her family woke up the next morning, Gray was missing.

She was eventually located at a government office in Chicago, appearing to be rational, in good health and not suffering from any physical injuries, police announced Friday.

Police will continue to investigate as to why and how Gray went missing.

“The Braidwood Police Department would like to thank all the civilian volunteers, numerous fire departments, various police departments, Shadow Lakes Home Owners Association management, and government employees and officials for their help in the search effort,” a statement from the department said.
