GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Louise Canaan, who has been missing for more than a day, was located at a family member's home in Pennsylvania at approximately 11 a.m. Tuesday.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Glendale Police Department is asking for the public's help to locate an endangered missing adult.

Louise Canaan, 89, was last seen by her family at approximately 7 a.m. Monday at her residence near 69th Avenue and Bethany Home Road in Glendale.

According to Sgt. Brent Coombs, Canaan's daughter arrived home after work Monday afternoon and found her mother missing, along with some clothing and a suitcase.

Coombs said Canaan recently made contact with another daughter in Shreveport, La., and expressed her desire to visit her.

Canaan is described as a black female, 4 feet 9 inches tall, 108 pounds, with gray hair and brown eyes. She suffers from dementia and requires daily medication for various medical conditions.

Canaan's family believes that her level of dementia would severely limit her ability to move about without assistance and they are extremely concerned about her welfare.
