Reno Police asking for publics help in locating missing endangered woman

The Reno Police Department asks for the publics help finding a missing woman they described as endangered.

Police said Candy Dean, 54, walked away from a care facility on Hammill Lane west of the Meadowood Mall area. Police and Washoe County Sheriffs Office search and rescue will be looking for her in the area.

Dean has several medical problems that limit her mobility and would cause her to fall, police said. She may seem confused or disoriented and would be unlikely to talk to people.

Police described her as 5 feet, 4 inches tall, skinny, with black hair in a pony tail, a pink-purplish long-sleeve shirt, black-and-white pajama bottoms and carrying a pink and white multi-colored twin-size blanket and a tan purse.

Missing woman was found safe. The Reno Police Department appreciates the assistance of the Washoe County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue and the public in locating the woman.
