Remains found could be those of woman who wandered from Atlanta nursing home

A 79 year-old woman has been missing from an Atlanta assisted living home since December. Yesterday, the Woodstock Police found the remains of a woman in a wooded area very close to the Woodstock Estates Assisted Living Home, from which she wandered.

Although the identity of the remains has not been disclosed, the woman is the only missing person in the area. The woman suffered from severe dementia and had walked away from the home before, exiting from her bedroom window. This prompted the staff to install a window alarm on the woman’s window.
