An 81-year-old woman who has early signs of dementia went missing Tuesday in Cerritos, and authorities say she may have been heading to Huntington Beach.

Patricia “Patty” Dolores Flores was last seen about 12:10 p.m. in the 12200 block of Eckelson Place, near the intersection of Norwalk and Del Amo boulevards, according to Deputy Trina Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. She was wearing a green shirt and blue jeans.

Flores is described as Hispanic, 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds, with short white and brown hair, brown eyes and a missing front tooth, Schrader said.

Authorities circulated a photo of Flores and urged anyone with information about her whereabouts to call the sheriff’s Missing Persons Unit at 323-890-5500. Those wishing to report anonymously can call 800-222-TIPS.
