Help Us Find This Woman

We sometimes write in general about people with memory impairment who wander. Today's post hits much closer to home.

A 58-year-old Long Beach woman with diabetes and mental illness left to buy hair dye at a drug store in Otay Mesa on Thursday and never made it back. She is the aunt of our marketing coordinator, Liz Reinhofer.

Yolanda Lopez has brown hair and eyes, is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. She was last seen wearing a beige thermal sweater, bluejeans, white shoes, three gold rings and gold bracelets on both wrists. According to news accounts, Yolanda has wandered from home before, but always returned later. She was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and bipolar disorder.

If you have seen her, or anyone who seemed to be walking in South Bay that may fit her description. She was last seen at sister's home at 523 Doolittle Avenue, Otay Mesa Thursday.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts was urged to contact San Diego police at (619) 531-2000.
