Update: The young woman was reunited with her family.
The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a woman who was found yesterday morning.
At around 9:30 am yesterday, deputies were dispatched to a report of a female wandering around in the area of the 6600 block of Mitchell Ave. in Metairie. They located the female, who is non-verbal and is unable to communicate. She was brought to a local hospital for evaluation, but efforts to identify her have been unsuccessful.
We believe that her condition likely requires extensive care, which she appears to have been getting. We are attempting to identify her in order to reunite her with her caretakers.
Anyone having information on the woman’s identity or that of her caretakers is asked to call 911 or our Missing Persons Section at 504-364-5300.
