The South Daytona Police Department needs your help in locating a missing 75-year-old woman who resides in the Lantern Park subdivision.

Gloria Reed, white female 5'4', was last seen Oct. 18 2019, during the day and was last heard from at 9:00pm by a friend.

Gloria was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white shirt with blue letters on it. She suffers from early stages of dementia, according to the police.

Anyone with information is asked to dial 911.

UPDATE: After searching the entire City with the help of our Police Department, City Council members, City employees, CERT team members and volunteers, Ms. Reed still has not been located. We have coordinated our search with the police departments in our neighboring cities to widen the search to areas outside of South Daytona. Nothing has turned up yet. Keep the positive thoughts coming as we continue to search today. Due to the overwhelming support, we will keep you updated today. Next update will be at noon unless she is located prior to that time.

UPDATE: The search is continuing with reports that Ms. Reed was seen at the Sunshine Park Mall around 9 am this morning. We are out in full force sweeping the areas around the mall, businesses and wooded areas. Daytona Beach Shores is assisting the search by utilizing a drone that can detect heat signatures. If you should see Ms. Reed, please call 911 immediately. Next update will be at 4 pm unless she is located prior to that time.

FOUND!!!! A resident was able to locate her walking on Reed Canal near Atlantic High School. She was confused but in relatively good condition for being in the elements overnight. Thank you to everyone who assisted in the search, South Daytona PD, CERT Team members, City Council members, City employees, Volusia County Sheriff Air One, Daytona Beach Shores and all of you!

On Saturday, October 5, members of the Greater Daytona All Airborne Chapter, Inc., 82nd Airborne Division Association spent the morning sprucing up Riverfront Veterans Memorial Park. Approximately 10 members painted the walls and doors of the two restrooms in the park, pressure washed the pavilion, and picked up light trash. They also donated a POW flag to hang at the park. The Greater Daytona All Airborne Chapter, Inc., 82nd Airborne Division Association volunteers twice a year to spruce up the park and will do so again in the spring. We would like to offer our gratitude to these veterans for their support of the park and the City of South Daytona. As stated by the members of the 82nd Airborne Division Association," Airborne All the Way!"

The members are pictured in a group photograph, pressure cleaning the pavilion and painting the restroom. Also on hand to help, City Manager, Les Gillis and Parks and Recreation Director, Greg Bartholomew
