Have you seen this lady?

Sarah Byrd, 85, was last seen at her home on Conlyn Street near 16th in Ogontz about 10 a.m. today. That's a problem, because Byrd has Alzheimer's disease. So police are asking anyone who sees her or knows where she might be to call 9-1-1 or Northwest Detectives at (215) 686-3353.

Byrd is described as 5-foot-1, 115 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing gold-rimmed glasses, a gray zippered sweater and brown pants.

UPDATE: 2:50 p.m., Nov. 14: Philly police reported today that Byrd was found, safe and sound.
