RENO, Nev. (KOLO)-- UPDATE: Reno police say 54-year-old Candy Dean has been found safe.

-----

The Reno Police Department asks for the public’s help finding a missing woman they describe as endangered.

Police said Candy Dean, 54, walked from a care facility on Hammill Lane west of the Meadowood Mall area. Police and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue are looking for her in the area.

Dean has several medical problems that limit her mobility and would cause her to fall, police say. She may seem confused or disoriented and would be unlikely to talk to people.

Police describe her as 5 feet, 4 inches tall and skinny, with black hair in a pony tail, a pink-purplish long-sleeve shirt, and black-and-white pajama bottoms; she was carrying a pink and white multi-colored twin-size blanket and a tan purse.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 775-334-2121.
