Vancouver Police say there’s still no sign of a woman with dementia, who was reported missing yesterday morning.
It has become a familiar plea from Police.
Constable Brian Montague says 64-year-old Shu Hui Chang was last seen at her home on West 49th – between Main and Cambie.
“Someone with medical conditions, aging, with dementia, to be away from home overnight can be upsetting for the family, but can be very difficult for the person missing as well.”
Montague adds with an aging population, these types of missing persons reports are becoming more common and are a challenge.
“We have actually found some people that have gone missing in Vancouver, as far away as the Okanagan, Vancouver Island, and they’ve wandered there somehow. They’ve gotten into a car, driven places, hopped ferries. So we find them all over the place, and yes, it is a concern.”
Chang is described as 5’1″ tall, weighing 125 pounds, with black hair. It is believed she was wearing white pants with black flowers, red shoes, possibly a red hat and carrying a red hand bag. She doesn’t speak English, and may be disoriented and confused.
If you see her, call 9-1-1 immediately, ask for police and ambulance and stay with her until officers arrive.
