ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Mich. – The St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and family of Nadine Moses are seeking the public’s help in locating the 84-year-old woman.

Michigan State Police have issued an Endangered Missing Alert on Monday, May 10.

At 84 years old, Moses is still independent. She’s dealt with what her sons Todd and Barry Moses call normal memory loss for someone her age but nothing that would explain what happened in the middle of Tuesday night, May 4.

“The whole question is why she woke so early in the middle of the night and decided that she needed to be going somewhere. That’s the part we’re just not sure of,” said Todd Moses. “Her bed was made, everything was neat and tidy. She took her morning pills before leaving. It didn’t seem to be a real hurry or rush.”

By that night, a full-on search was underway. Before long, volunteers had gone as far north as Bad Axe and back south to her home in Casco Township. There has been intense focus on Marine City where police said her cellphone last pinged a tower at about 9 a.m. on May 4.

“We don’t know if she went out, got turned around, got lost and just kept going farther out. It just been kind of mystery,” said Barry Moses.

Now there is hope that someone has seen her. There is hope and lots of prayers, neither of which made Mother’s Day any easier for the family.

“It’s tough with losing our dad. It was a lonely Mother’s Day,” Barry Moses said.

Authorities said Moses drives a blue 2011 Ford Edge with a Michigan handicap license plate, No. C8932.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office at 810-985-8115 or 911.
