An elderly woman known only as Mrs. Julia, has been reported missing since Saturday, September 9th. The report was made after a couple of items belonging to her were located near the old dump site south of San Pedro Town. However, she is yet to be found.

The report from the San Pedro Police states that on Saturday around 11AM, a Mario Augusto Flores Peña visited the station to make the report. According to Peña, he found the items behind a residence at the old dump where he goes to feed some dogs every day. He elaborated that the items were a Samsung flip open cell phone, a key, a yellow cap, and a white nylon purse, which he identified to be the belongings of the elderly lady. Peña also told authorities that Mrs. Julia lives approximately 100 metres away from where he feeds the dogs, so it was not strange to him to find her items, since the lady usually goes there to bathe and cook, due to the many mosquitoes at her place.

Police are investigating, and they ask the public to contact them with any information that may lead to her whereabouts. The San Pedro Police Station is located on Pescador Drive, and can be contacted via phone at 206-2022.
