    Details of Disappearance

    Alice was last seen at her residence in the 1100 block of Outrigger Drive in Merritt Island, Florida sometime during March 2000. She left behind her wheelchair, identification, clothing and other belongings, and has never been heard from again. Alice's son, Carl, had been awarded temporary caregiver rights to his mother at the time of her disappearance. He was paid $500 a month out of his mother's bank account for his expenses in caring for her.

    Carl has refused to divulge his mother's whereabouts to authorities. He initially said she was being looked after by friends in Georgia, but couldn't produce any proof of this. Carl was charged with forgery and exploiting the elderly in connection with his mother's disappearance. He has an extensive criminal record for crimes including battery, kidnapping and disorderly conduct.

    Investigators believe it is possible that Alice wandered away from her home in a disoriented state. She was reported as a missing person in May 2000, two months after she was last seen. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
