Family continues to search for missing Mesa woman

The family of an elderly woman who's been missing for almost a week is spending their holiday morning searching for her.

According to Mesa police, Mary O'Sullivan-Schultz, 70, has been missing since June 28. Police say she wandered away from her care facility located near Higley and Broadway Roads.

Police say O'Sullivan-Schultz has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and is bi-polar. She is also on medication for anxiety and high blood pressure that she does not have with her.

With temps soaring over the next couple of days, volunteers looking for Schultz say they have to stand down for safety, but they are not giving up hope.

"We really hope that she held up somewhere and is out of the sun, but because of her disease, she loves to go and she doesn't know if its safe or not," said Schultz's daughter, Leigh.

Leigh and over a hundred co-workers, strangers and friends have covered dozens of square miles around the care facility.

"You know if it was my mom that was missing, I'd want somebody to come and help look," said Louise Nail.

Over 100 people searched at five locations in Mesa. Leigh said they planned to stop search at 9:30 on most morning.

"Obviously if its not safe for me to be out, and I'm a super healthy individual, it's even worse for my mom to be out, because she can't take care of herself her dementia is so bad," said Leigh.

If you see her, please call police at 602-644-2211.
