RANCHO CUCAMONGA – The 83-year-old Rancho Cucamonga woman who was reported missing on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, has been found deceased.
Mary Curwick was reported missing on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at around 4:06 p.m. She was last seen at her home in the 9800 block of 19th Street in the City of Rancho Cucamonga by her neighbor a couple of days before. Her neighbor told authorities that the door to her home had been left open. When authorities spoke to Curwick’s family, they said that they had not spoken to her since Friday, May 12, 2017.
She attempted to purchase gas on Sunday, May 14, 2017, at Mesa Drive Fuels in Blythe California. Authorities only figured this out after finding that her debit card was used at the location and further investigation showed that it was, in fact, her that attempted to make a purchase there. When authorities made contact with the clerk at the Mesa Drive Fuels they said that she was having trouble swiping her card so they gave her $15 of gas. She said that she was on her way to Palm Springs at the time. Palm Springs is over 120 miles west of Blythe in the direction of Curwick’s Rancho Cucamonga home. The gas station clerk said that she appeared to be coherent at that time.
Unconfirmed reports also indicated that Mary Curwick was also seen in the Kingman Arizona area, Rancho Cucamonga Police said. The sad announcement came from Kris Greening, Mary Curick’s grandson on Friday night, “Unfortunately I have bad news, they found my Grandmother, Mary S. Curwick, expired in her car about five miles outside of Blythe, California.”
Circumstances surrounding her death are unclear, but medications prescribed to Curwick for high blood pressure, diabetes, and seizures were found inside of her home.
