MANHATTAN, N.Y. (PIX11) — The daughter of Queens woman Juana Colon Pichardo notified PIX11 News Friday that her mother was “found in a store on First Avenue ‘weak and dizzy,’ and a generous person called 911.”
Colon Pichardo, who is 71 and has dementia, was last seen Monday morning walking on 102nd Street and 42nd Avenue in Corona, Queens — after visiting her son at a barbershop there. The woman’s husband had taken her to the shop on a bus from Flushing.
The daughter, Angie Colon, said Colon Pichardo was going to buy a piece of fruit for her granddaughter when she disappeared.
After 911 was called from the First Avenue store in Manhattan, Colon Pichardo was taken to Metropolitan Hospital for evaluation.
The NYPD confirmed Juana Colon Pichardo was found and wrote, “Through an investigation, we determined she was at Metropolitan Hospital. We were able to confirm she was there (Thursday).”
