    Thank you all for you care and compassion. Sug's four son's and her extended family are terribly upset and now becoming quite afraid. Each hour, we are waiting by the phone for news. Sug is a very sweet gentle woman. She does not smoke. Some have said they have seen an elderly woman matching her description begging for cigarettes. Sug does not have her purse and may not have her glasses. She usually asks people to call her son David Larson when she feels the need to come home or is confused. If someone saw her in Durham, we wonder how she got there. The family is holding onto any bit of hope. One of students told me today the 9 out of 10 people with dementia are found. I am holding onto that hope.

    Sug left home on foot. Her car has been made unavaliable to her since the previous disappearance. We thank you for your continued support and help in this time of need.
