She was last seen leaving her residence on foot wearing a blue and white striped shirt with black or Navy blue pants.  She may, possibly, have a black purse. Llera is 4’9” tall, 130 pounds with short auburn and grey hair.

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.
