Floreanne Mayfield, 70, Has Alzheimer’s & Wandered From Casino

Police believe she may have gotten a ride from a stranger.

As a little girl, my mother’s parents lived on the other side of the country so I didn’t get to see them as often as we liked. My grandfather didn’t want to visit California because he was certain that an earthquake was going to cause the entire state to break off and become its own island, but my grandmother had no problem hopping a plane for short, yet sweet, vacations. Sometimes, my mom would make it a Vegas trip because Granny loved her penny and nickel slots. I’d be in our Hilton hotel room with my mom watching movies, waiting up late for my grandmother who would make her way back at all hours. Her fingers were dirty from the coins and she would look exhausted from patrolling the casinos trying to win big, but she always had a good time.  This is why this story of Floreanne Mayfield touched my heart.

On November 20, 2016, Floreanne visited the Hollywood Casino in Kansas City, Kansas. Around 1:30 a.m., the 70-year-old left the casino and was seen heading south on Hollywood Casino Blvd. on foot. She was captured by the casino surveillance cameras exiting the premises. Floreanne Mayfield has Alzheimer’s disease and police believe she may have become confused and gotten a ride from someone at some point during her walk.

Almost two years later, no one has seen or heard from Floreanne. A Silver Alert (similar to an Amber Alert) was issued when she went missing. Investigators have attempted to gather information, but there weren’t any substantial leads.

It’s unclear if there were any other street or security cameras that may have captured when and where Floreanne seemed to have disappeared. Very little information has been made available in her case and reports about Floreanne Mayfield are scarce.

At the time of her disappearance, Floreanne Mayfield is described as approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall and 130 pounds. Floreanne’s hair is black and grey and she has brown eyes. She has a small knot on her upper back. She was last seen wearing a tan-colored jacket, a white shirt, blue jeans, and black tennis shoes. Her nickname is “Lee.”

Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department at 913-596-3000 or their local authorities

Cook County Jane Doe 2016 Illinois

There doesn’t seem to be any investigating agencies looking into this case, but I believe that the story involving this unidentified woman in Cook County, Illinois deserves to be highlighted. This article may be brief, but it goes to show just little is often shared and reported on, and frequently, these cases become lost in the abyss as time moves forward. There isn’t much known about Cook County Jane Doe 2016, as I’ve named her, but here is what I could gather from only one agency that has listed her report.
