|Santa Monicans Asked for Help in Locating Mission Woman||
By Lookout StaffOctober 19, 2016 -- Missing since Saturday, a 55-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s disease who loves walks on the beach could be headed in the direction of Santa Monica, friends and family said Tuesday as they asked the public for help in finding her.
Paulikas was wearing a red long-sleeve blouse with a white flower pattern, blue jeans and black and white sneakers. Capka said she was diagnosed with early on-set Alzheimer’s disease two years ago and that it worsened quickly.
She was an engineer with TRW before her disease hit, where she and Capka were colleagues, he said.
Paulikas disappeared during a family trip to LACMA. She was last seen exiting the restroom at LACMA about 3 p.m. on Saturday. She appeared to walk toward a museum exhibit and then she vanished, her husband, Kirk Moody, has said. The two had separated from other family members to use the restrooms.
Although she wears a MedAlert bracelet, Paulikas also was prone to taking it off, her friends and family said. She was not carrying any other form of identification or cash.
Police ask that anyone who locates Paulikas contact the Los Angeles Police Department Wilshire Division at (213) 473-0476 or the family, at (310) 650-7965.
