Carol Sanders had last been seen near the intersection of East Commerce Way and Del Paso Road about 3 p.m. Police said she was considered at risk because she suffers from dementia, which can affect her reasoning and awareness of her circumstances. With cold weather expected during the night, police asked the public to be on the lookout for Sanders.
