Please help find mum: Marian Wallace's family plea

SUE Harrison is desperately calling for anyone to help her family find her mother, Marian Wallace.

Sue is one of Marian's five daughters, who are all distraught about the disappearance of the 71-year-old woman who is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Marian had been living in Embracia On Bribie for only a short time when she left the nursing home on September 7. She has not been found since.

Sue said with Alzheimer's disease, Marian could have left for a range of reasons.

"Anything is possible. If you know anything about that horrible disease, it would depend on the moment," she said.

"She was talking to the staff about Wamuran, which is where she used to live, and she was talking about a hospital appointment."

 

Marian has a large family and is a grandmother to seven and a great- grandmother to five children, all of whom have come together in this difficult time.

"We're keeping as busy as we can, focusing on getting her back, but needless to say, we're all pretty distraught," Sue said.

Sue said they think Marian may have been given a lift off the island.

"When you're first talking to her, you may not pick up that she has dementia," she said. "We understand if someone has given her a helping hand. We just need any information to help us."

Bribie Island officer-in-charge Acting Senior Sergeant Ryan Hanlon said the search was still going on all over Bribie Island.

"The search will continue until further information comes to hand or Marian is located," he said.

Acting Snr Sgt Hanlon said the community response to find Marian had been great.
