Elderly Jamestown woman missing
The Jamestown Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating Ruby Grenz, 78, of Jamestown, who has been missing since 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Jamestown Police Capt. Gary Peterson said Grenz was last seen leaving the Second Avenue Salon at 5 p.m. Grenz was driving a silver 2005 Dodge Caravan minivan with North Dakota license plates HNW560. Peterson said there is a Hawaiian lei hanging from the rearview mirror.
Grenz is described as 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 138 pounds and wears glasses with brown and blue frames. She was last seen wearing a rust-colored fleece Columbia coat, a red sweater and brown pants. Peterson said Grenz had gotten her hair permed at Second Avenue Salon during her appointment there.
Peterson said Grenz gets confused and disoriented due to medication she is taking.
Grenz doesn’t like to drive at night or on the highway, according to Peterson.
“We’re asking people to take a look around their streets and neighborhoods to see if there is a minivan matching Grenz’s vehicle description,” Peterson said.
He said he is also concerned because the coat that Grenz was wearing isn’t suitable to wear in cold temperatures.
Anyone who might have seen Grenz or a vehicle matching the silver 2005 Dodge Caravan should call the Jamestown Police Department at 252-1000.
