BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Officials are considering suspending the search for a 74-year-old woman who went missing in the foothills northwest of Boulder almost two weeks ago.
Ken Rosales, Boulder County's emergency services coordinator, tells The Daily Camera that crews will likely decide Monday whether or not to suspend the search for Patricia Wallace of Lafayette. The woman was hiking with a group of friends in the Camp Dick area July 3 when she decided to take an alternate route she thought would be easier.
Wallace, who may be suffering from early stages of dementia, is 5-foot-5, 135 pounds, with dark brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a big floppy hat and often hikes with trekking poles.
