GARDEN CITY (WWJ) - A local family is frantically searching for a 75-year-old woman who pulled out her feeding tube, walked away from a hospital emergency room and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

William Pratt said his mother, Judith Gonzalez, was last seen around 3 p.m. Monday when she walked away from Garden City Hospital on Inkster Road and seemingly vanished into thin air.

Pratt described his mother as “confused,” saying she suffers from dementia and severe paranoia. The longer Gonzalez is without medication, the more severe her confusion will become, Pratt said.

Gonzales typically uses a walker, but does not have it with her. She is described as 4 feet, 7 inches tall and 110 pounds.

Anyone with information on Gonzalez’s whereabouts is urged to contact police at 734-793-1700.
