Long Beach police are asking for help finding a 69-year-old woman who was last seen by her family on Christmas Eve.
Police said Rosa Ella Brady suffers from unspecified medical conditions and can become disoriented, so they need help finding her.
She was last seen by a family member on Dec. 24 in the 2300 block of Eucalyptus Avenue, which is in Long Beach’s Wrigley neighborhood, police said in a news release.
“She left on foot and is known to use public transportation on her own,” police said. “She likely has a black four-wheel laundry cart and a green plastic bag that contain her belongings.”
Police provided a small photo of Brady but cautioned that it was 20 years old.
Authorities have been looking for her since Christmas Day when she was reported missing around 1:45 p.m., police said.
Brady is black, 5-foot-3, 134 pounds with short gray hair and brown eyes, police said. She was wearing a white or gray beanie, black sweats and black Nike shoes, police said. She usually wears prescription glasses.
Authorities asked anyone who sees Brady to call LBPD at 562-435-6711 or 911.
