The power of social media has proved useful in the efforts to try and locate her as now family members are able to narrow the search area. “I think I saw this lady walking the toll highway heading toward old harbor….she caught my attention because i didn’t see any houses closeby,” wrote a user in the comment section below a post on Dear Dreams, a popular Jamaican Blog platform.

Another chimed in, “I am almost certain I saw this lady walking pass Ferry yesterday about 4-4:30pm… She was heading into the direction of Spanish Town. The person I saw, had already pass the bridge out of Ferry walking alone, dressed in dark clothing, I think the top was black…”

While there has not been a confirmation of her exact medical condition, persons have speculated that she is currently suffering from a type of dementia.

According to The World Health Organization, “dementia is a syndrome in which there is deterioration in memory, thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday activities.”
