BERWICK -- Police officers found a missing 71-year-old woman who'd been showing sings of confusion or possible dementia and wandered off from an East Front Street home late Friday night, family members say. Judy Patterson was found by borough officers who were searching along the embankment along Canal Road late Sunday morning, family said. Patterson has been staying with her daughter, Neta Hartig, at 132 East Front St., while the family gets Patterson medical attention to find out what's been causing her recent confusion, Hartig said. Hartig awoke around 9 a.m. Saturday to find her mother missing, police said. Family and friends have been out looking for her and were organizing a larger search and looking for volunteers. Family said they were hoping police could organize a broader search on Sunday, and had also been in touch with a canine search and rescue group for help. Police officers canvassed the area on foot Saturday, also to no avail, the borough department said. Patterson, who has suffered from some mental illness in the past, was not carrying a phone, purse, ID or money that the family knows of, her daughter said.
