The Texarkana, Texas, Police have located a woman with dementia who wandered away from home twice over the weekend.
Sadami Slick initially wandered away from her home on Moore’s Lane on Friday before being located at Central Mall a few hours later around 3 p.m. Slick wandered away again on Sunday and was again located safe just before 5 p.m.
Calls from citizens who see missing person alerts on social media lead to many missing or at risk people being found safe by police.
In many cases, those who go missing may be elderly, and may suffer from mental issues that leave them confused or unable to cope with their surroundings. Many such cases result in the person leaving home and being unprepared for the elements, especially when temperatures are particularly low overnight.
The police have said that they appreciate the public's involvement in such cases, as tips from concerned citizens often lead to positive outcomes.
