A mentally handicapped woman with diabetes has gone missing from her Manorhaven home, possibly for as long as for 12 days, and Nassau Police need help finding her.
The last time Pearl Braun, 59, was known to make contact with anyone was on July 13 with her legal guardian at Cornell Medical Center.
Braun is described as white, 5-foot-8-inches and 180 pounds. Police say she suffers with high blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, depression, and mental illness and is in poor mental and physical condition.
The Silver Alert was issued by Nassau Police Friday afternoon, 11 days after the woman was last seen. The program disseminates information to local media, hospitals and other organizations when a senior citizen or other individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other cognitive disorders goes missing.
Many of those reported missing are located.
A Silver Alert had been issued for Braun in June, but she was found July 2.
Patch is trying to secure a photo of Braun to help identify her.
