DETROIT (WWJ) -- Detroit police are asking for the public's help in locating an elderly woman who was last seen on the city's east side over the weekend.

Police say 88-year-old Roberta McClendon left her house in the 18000 block of Moenart -- in the area of Nevada Avenue and Mound Road -- around 2 p.m. Sunday to go to a meeting that was located in the 10000 block of E. Jefferson.

Family members spoke to McClendon on the phone later in the evening, but police say she never came back home.

Her family is concerned for her safety, due to her age, according to police.

McClendon is about 5-foot-2, 135 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black suit, black hat, black coat and black shoes. She is said to be in good physical and mental condition.

When she left home, McClendon was driving a black 2007 Lincoln, with license plate No. DZT4216.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen McClendon or her vehicle, or otherwise knows of her whereabouts, to call the Detroit Police Department’s Eleventh Precinct Investigative Unit at 313-596-1140. Calls can also be made anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
