Police looking to identify woman who doesn’t know who she is



Police are looking to help identify a woman they have located.

According to Pawtucket Police, on January 1, 2020, at approximately 2:45 p.m., Pawtucket Police responded to the corner of Suffolk Avenue and Grand Avenue to check on the well-being of a lost, elderly female. Upon arrival, an officer spoke with the female. She was confused and disoriented. She was unable to provide sufficient information to identify herself or determine where she lives. She was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Pawtucket Police is looking for any information that may help identify her. She may go by the name “Madeline” or “Alluida” and may have connections to New York.

If you have any information or know the identity of this woman, please contact the Pawtucket Police Department at (401)727-9100.

    Your local Alzheimer’s Assoc can give you information about how to get an ID bracelet for your loved one so that all necessary contact and medical data will be available to police in this type of an emergency.

    Considering her age, I would think it safe to assume she has had medical attention. DNA on file?

      It was given to us by police so I would guess it was taken at the police department.

    Finger print or teeth. Her family could have been notified in 48 hours easily. Stop pretending to care and actually do your jobs.

      Because the police don’t want her to go home? Highly unlikely.

    How sad . Definitely need to invest in an ID bracelet or necklace for and those loved ones with Alzheimer’s. Praying her family sees this post and she’s able to get the love attention and care that she needs

      Bracelets and necklaces do no good….they take them off….they need to be with someone 24hrs a day….7 days a week and 365 days per year….

    This gives power to the Government agenda to have those ID chips implanted in everyone. How funny that this was a story just weeks ago and now we have Poor Elderly “Madeline” who will now give the argument power.

    Thank God it didn’t happen but had she been shot by Law enforcement everyone in her family would have come forward by now to bring a lawsuit against LEO’s.

    So her son just happened to lose contact a few years ago & didn’t think maybe to file a missing persons report or ? The story makes it sound like they wern’t even looking for her! I hope thats not true.
