SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Police are continuing to search for a missing woman with symptoms of dementia.
It has been nearly one week since Wilma Trotter, 60, went missing. She was last seen in Scotia early Friday morning.
The Schenectady woman's family is now asking for help in their search to find Trotter.
According to police, Trotter was last seen when she was dropped off by a cab at a home on Washington Avenue in Scotia. Police say Trotter told the cab driver that she was going to her friend's house, but those living at the home said they do not know the woman.
An air and water search has been conducted in the area but there has been no sign of Trotter.
On Wednesday, family and friends handed out flyers. They are also calling on the public to help.
"Everybody might not watch the news but you know the more people that are aware of this situation the easier it will be to help bring her back home and to have like my wife says sympathy for other people that have gone through this and that will go through this. You know one community needs to be able to take care of their own," said Wilma's son, David Trotter.
Trotter is described as a black female, 5'4" tall, weighs 200 lbs., and has brown eyes and gray hair. She was last seen wearing a dark full-length dress, dark poncho, and a red pillbox hat.
If you have any information about this case you are asked to call Schenectady Police.
