According to Pedersen, Llera had made a statement to a family member that she was going to go to New York City to the area of 125th Street because her mother used to live there. Llera has wandered off in the past and has been located on previous occasions in Wall Township.

She has not taken her medication and she also suffers from high blood pressure and diabetes. The attached picture of her in the striped shirt is the outfit she was wearing when she left the residence on Thursday afternoon.

Anyone who may have seen her is asked to call the Brick Township Police Department at 732-262-1100.

    To those with family that suffer like this too, don’t be afraid to be proactive. There are systems that can be purchased to alert family in the case that your loved one isn’t at home. Many don’t want to take away things from their family member as this terrible disease takes form but I promise that controlling the situation is better than dealing with situations like this one. Don’t feel like your taking away their freedom because keeping them safe while also keeping them out of a facility is a tightrope walk that’s not easy to balance.
