Silver Alert: 88-year-old Myrtle Polk still missing in Dallas

Myrtle Polk

Police and loved ones are still searching for an elderly woman who disappeared earlier this week in the East Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas.

A Silver Alert was issued for 88-year-old Myrtle Polk.

She was last seen in the 1100 block of Indian Creek Trail driving a black 2004 Lexus ES 330 with the license plate number BV7K204.

"The last time she was seen was on Saturday. And she’s 88 years old and has some memory problems. So our concern is that she’s gotten herself somewhere, and she’s confused and doesn’t know where she is. And we just want to bring her home safely," said Phillip Polk, her son. 

Polk's son lives in Atlanta but returned home as soon as he got word of his mother's disappearance. He told FOX 4 that her neighbors saw her Saturday morning in the front yard while someone was cutting her grass.

"We haven't seen her since," he said. "Her church is right up the street – Singing Hills Baptist Church – where she normally is a few days a week. And so our thinking is that on Sunday she had intentions to go somewhere, got confused, and now just doesn't know where she is."

Family and friends have turned to social media for help. They've also been canvassing the streets in Polk's neighborhood looking for clues on doorbell camera video.

Polk is described as a petite woman at just 5 feet 2 inches tall and 120 pounds. She has white hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about her is asked to call 911 immediately or the Dallas Police Department at 214-671-4268.
