Dallas Community Alert: Elderly Woman Myrtle Polk Missing, Police Seek Public's AssistanceSource: Dallas Police Department

The Dallas Police Department has issued a call for assistance to the community as they search for Myrtle Polk, an 88-year-old woman reported missing since June 11. Polk was last seen at around noon driving her 2004 Black Lexus ES 330, with Texas license plate BV7-K204, according to details provided by the Dallas Police Department

Described as 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighing about 120 pounds with white hair and brown eyes, Myrtle Polk's disappearance raises concerns not merely because of her age, which itself may render her particularly vulnerable but also because the community woven into the fabric of the 1100 block of Indian Creek Trail now finds a hole, a gap, a missing piece in their continuum.

If anyone has seen Myrtle Polk or has any related information, they are urged to step forward and immediately contact the police department—dialing 911 can expedite the process while those with potential leads may also reach out to the dedicated number (214) 671-4268 to contribute any detail that might assist in locating Ms. Polk.

Time is of the essence and as each moment drifts by the likelihood of reuniting Myrtle Polk with her loved ones grows slim hope remains that the eyes and ears of the community will come together, acting as extensions of law enforcement, to return the 88-year-old to her rightful place among friends, family, and the network of residents that miss her presence.
