Detectives believe that a missing 83-year-old Rancho Cucamonga woman may be on her way or already in the area of Palm Springs based on investigations.
Mary Curwick was reported missing on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at 4:06 p.m. Police from the Rancho Cucamonga Station responded to her home in the 9800 block of 19th Street and made contact with her neighbor who said that her door was left open and he had not seen her for a couple of days. Curwick’s family had not spoken to her since Friday, May 12, 2017.
Mary is a White woman, who is 5’2” tall, 150 pounds, with hazel eyes and short gray hair. She was last seen in her 2014 Ford Fiesta with California License plate 7DHH239. The vehicle has moderate front fender damage. Initially authorities said her vehicle was last seen in San Pedro on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at around 9:21 p.m. There was no explanation as to why she was in the San Pedro area.
After searching her Rancho Cucamonga home detectives located medication bottles indicating the Curwick was suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, and seizures. They also learned that on Sunday, May 14, 2017, Curwick’s debit card was used at Mesa Drive Fuels in Blythe California, but the card was declined. Riverside County Sheriff’s assisted by reviewing surveillance footage from the gas station which showed that Mary Curwick was in-fact there.
The gas station attendant also said that she was having a difficult time swiping her card, so they gave her $15 of gas. Curwick told the gas station attendant that she was headed to Palm Springs, and the attendant believed she was coherent. A Silver Alert was activated to help locate Mary Curwick.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department at the Silver Alert Hotline at (866) 346-7632.
