Police are asking for the public s help in locating an elderly Everett woman reported missing last Wednesday.

Family members believe Ethel A. O Neil, 89, drove herself to the Everett Mall at about 2 p.m. on July 16 but never returned home.

She has some memory issues, said her son, Patrick O'Neil. There's a little bit of... dementia but most of the time or all of the time, pretty much when she goes someplace, she's crystal clear.

Community tips indicate O Neil was last seen in the Lake Stevens / Marysville area on Wednesday afternoon, where she asked for a map and directions back to Everett.

O Neil drives a baby-blue 1987 Chevy Nova (WA-ADP6803), which has not been located.

There hasn't been any activity on her credit card or checking account.

If you have any information you are asked to call 911.
