An 88-year-old woman from Palos Heights, Illinois who was missing, has finally reunited with her folks. Police asked the public to assist in finding her, but details about how she was finally found are yet to be revealed.


Delores Eriksen made a strange phone call to her daughter on Thursday at 3:45 p.m. She was lost and needed help.

Eriksen reportedly left her home on 6200-block of West 129th Street in Palos Heights earlier that morning. When she contacted her daughter, she mentioned that she might be in Indiana.

The elderly woman is white, stands at five feet, two inches, and weighs 135 pounds. She wears short gray hair and glasses. She has brown eyes.


Eriksen had last spotted in a short blue coat and carrying a black purse. Her vehicle is a 2012 Ford Focus painted light green. The Illinois license plate reads AAE29.

According to authorities, Eriksen is not familiar with highways and she does not use a mobile phone. She was last seen close to 129th Place and Ridgeland Avenue on her way to Evergreen Park.

Fortunately, on December 21, local police announced that Eriksen was found unharmed on December 7.


The authorities didn’t provide any further detail about how and where exactly she was found, other than sharing that the octogenarian borrowed a phone to call her daughter to tell her that she had lost her way home.

Back on December 12, three missing persons from West Virginia were found in an abandoned mine after being gone since December 9.

Cody Beverly, 21, Kayla Williams, 25, and Erica Treadway, 31, finally came out of the Rock House Powellton mine in Clear Creek in the night.


The young adults exited the mine battered but alive. Their families were relieved despite their illegal entrance into the mine to steal copper wire.

Just yesterday, a teenage girl went missing in Bacliff, Texas. Mercedes “Sadie” Lee, 15, was last seen in camouflage print pants and a black hoodie-styled warmup jacket over a black long-sleeved shirt.

Persons with information can call the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office at (281) 534-3515 or Texas EquuSearch at (281) 309-9500.
