SHREVEPORT – Louisiana State Police issued a money alert last night for a missing Shreveport woman, but that alert has since been canceled.
Daisy Walker, 76, was last seen by family members at her residence. They then reported to police that she had moved away from her apartment shortly after being put to bed on Thursday night.
They said she may have been wearing peach sweatpants and a black beanie on her head, and left her glasses on.
Family members say Walker suffered from advanced dementia.
Investigators, patrollers, firefighters, family members and volunteers searched for Walker throughout the day and night when the search was suspended around 1 a.m. and was scheduled to continue into the morning.
The Shreveport Police Department said on Saturday they found Walker’s body, according to KSLA.
Police arrived at the scene at 8:30 a.m. after receiving reports that a body was inside a drain in the Chevyland parking lot on Youree Drive in Shreveport.
Officers at the scene were directed to a concrete opening where they discovered the body.
Shreveport firefighters arrived with rescue equipment and were able to recover the remains of what appeared to be an elderly woman.
An autopsy confirmed it was Walker.
