The San Francisco Police Department is asking for the public's help to find an elderly area woman who lost touch with her family over a week ago.
According to SFPD spokesperson Officer Albie Esparza, 73 year-old Lani Uchida "usually stays at SROs in San Francisco" and "typically calls her family every Sunday from a payphone located on the Embarcadero."
When they didn't hear from her this Sunday, her family grew worried and asked police to investigate, saying that Uchida has a medical condition that requires medication.
Her family last spoke with her on Sunday, February 14th, and "have not heard from her since," Esparza says.
Have you seen Uchida? If so, please call SFPD's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
