FWIW, the city is blanketed in surveillance cameras capturing high-resolution imagery. There's technically a video record of tracks from work. Should be on the PATH train as well. You'd have to find out how to get access to it/who can help with it.

If she uses a PATH Smartlink card, it'll be registered in her name and with her information. Port Authority ought to be able to check where her card was last swiped.

Upvoted. You could also repost on the Jersey city subreddit since the WTC path runs through all the JC stops. My heart goes out to you. I am a Path rider as well and will do my best to keep an eye out.

Have you put out a Silver Alert? It's like an amber alert for seniors.
14 Jan 2018 09:42 - +115
Does she have any mental diseases like Dementia or Alzheimer's? If so she might even be as far off as northern PA.

I don't see the listing in NCIC. What is the NIC number for the case?

Is the hair color recent? I wouldn't ask only I saw a very short old lady at about 8pm today on 9th Ave between 39 and 40th st. She could have been about 5ft but I wouldn't have guessed 4ft 10" but maybe. I wish I could remember her clothing but I don't. But I do recall her because she had a vacant look in her eyes that totally caught my attention. She was waiting by a bus stop and that caught my attention because she was so old I was shocked she was standing out in the cold waiting for a downtown bus. The only issue is I swear she had blonde hair. Now I really was focused on her eyes so I might be wrong. But is the hair color recent?

Can't say for certain it was her but I saw a similar looking woman eating a gas station hot dog and chips in Chicago today.

Check all area hospitals. Esp ICU and neuro floors.
14 Jan 2018 12:03 - +29
I know it's been said, but check hospitals! I work in an ER and sometimes it can take tens of hours for us to contact a patient's family.

If you have a loved one that you're worried about wandering off and getting lost, consider enrolling them in [Project Lifesaver]( It's a little radio transponder bracelet that help police find a missing person in roughly half an hour instead of the national average of 9 hours. So far, project lifesaver has a 100% success rate at finding missing members.
14 Jan 2018 11:49 - +26
FWIU, they could even have the mods verify this account.
14 Jan 2018 11:03 - +24
She looks like a really nice lady, godspeed and I really hope everything is OK.
14 Jan 2018 11:41 - +23
People should always date these flyers.

#OP here with some updates: First of all, thank you to everyone who has commented, sent messages of support, suggested ideas, and shared. We truly appreciate all the assistance. I want to clarify a few things. She lives alone so there are many coworkers and friends trying to help, myself included. I'm a former coworker and I now live on the other side of the country. **The Facebook group can be found [here]( and the Union Township Police Department posted about her at [this link](** There are numerous people taking on different tasks -- I'll post the latest updates as I have them, and I will also be able to share any new details with the rest of the search party. We definitely did not create a fake post or a fake story for Reddit karma... Answers to other questions that were asked: * No record of her at NY or NJ hospitals. I've personally made calls and we've had police contacts check for us as well. We also asked about Jane Doe patients. * There is ongoing communication with law enforcement in NY and NJ. People are going through the procedures necessary to get authorization for law enforcement to check financial activity, transit surveillance footage, etc. * Other search party members have gone to all the transit stations along her route in NJ and NY, spoken to Port Authority police, MTA, etc. and handed out flyers. * Her cell phone is off and has had no activity. * She doesn't have a car. Many users have complained about my post title requesting upvotes. I've also gotten some derogatory comments and "bad wishes," but the mods and other users have been really great about combatting those. Thank you to them and my apologies for unintentionally breaking a Reddit rule. Some people have suggested this is an elaborate plan to "stalk" or endanger Mary Ann. Obviously that is outrageous and not true, but I understand why it can be challenging to parse out the truth on the internet. The "missing person" flyer explicitly provides a contact number for her local police department. I posted on Reddit because I thought that maybe a handful of commuters would come across the flyer and even one small clue or new piece of information could be a major development. Fortunately many people have seen the post, so we're keeping our fingers crossed. If the mods or admins need to contact me privately because of some Reddit rule issues or other kind of verification, I understand and that's no problem.

Just fyi this might be related to NJ Transit's absolute clusterfuck of broken trains, cancelled trains, broken tracks and VERY long delays. Trains were switched, rerouted, never came--total disaster. Took hours to get home this past Friday. /u/HelpFindMaryAnnClark
14 Jan 2018 13:55 - +10
Hey OP I'm sure it would help if you linked a few more photos of Mary for further identifiers as well as to keep the community helpful, it would probably debunk anyone's skepticism of the validity if you have pictures with this woman? Understandable if not, but I strongly believe more pictures would help. What's the group she's obviously standing with in the picture? Anymore from this event or gathering?
14 Jan 2018 11:00 - +7
Did she drive to the station? Would she pass through any tolls - if so, does she have EZPass?
14 Jan 2018 11:33 - +5
omg... i live in nj and take nj transit all the time.. i hope shes ok :/ . best of luck
14 Jan 2018 12:00 - +4
r/newjersey ... I hope you find her soon, and that she is alright
14 Jan 2018 12:30 - +4
Praying for them. Hope someone will find them alive.
14 Jan 2018 12:33 - +4
Posted on my Facebook and asked family/friends to keep an eye out. Best of luck in this time my friend. All hopes and prayers are with you and your family.
14 Jan 2018 13:03 - +3
You’re a good person for going back. I can’t do shit because I’m in Tennessee. My grandmother used to do wander off due to dementia, it was tough on the family for a while until we figured out how to handle it. She passed last year a week after I got married. I hope OP finds her soon and safe.
14 Jan 2018 16:12 - +3
I hope you find her and that she is okay
14 Jan 2018 11:17 - +3
Good luck in finding her!! Will keep an eye out in Canada
14 Jan 2018 12:17 - +3
Dear Lord, please find her. I can’t help from GA but God bless.
14 Jan 2018 15:28 - +2
I hope you find her! I’m wishing you guys all the luck in the world❤️
14 Jan 2018 12:53 - +2
You may have done so, but if she made it to New York, You should speak with AM Track police. They patrol Penn station. Also, give flyers to every hospital and EMS station. NYPD as well but, EMS and hospitals for sure. May you find her.
14 Jan 2018 13:39 - +2
I would also advise you to contact St Peters Prep as NJ Transit and Path are crawling with these kids(commuting to school) /u/HelpFindMaryAnnClark
14 Jan 2018 11:57 - +2
What part of tribeca would she be in if she made it here
14 Jan 2018 12:17 - +2
Best of luck

Check with PORT Authority
14 Jan 2018 13:12 - +1
Is law enforcement involved? They can track her cell phone, if she has one. And ATM or credit card usage. I am assuming she does not have a car.

14 Jan 2018 15:34 - +1
Godspeed in your efforts. Can you post information about her current (or previous) work. It may not seem relevant in the moment but it could lead to someone finding the connection to her potential whereabouts.
14 Jan 2018 16:04 - +1
I hope you find her safely. If there are any further details you can share, I’ll pass it on to a friend who works out around that area . I’m keeping my head up for you and all those who love her. Please feel free to PM tone if I can help.
14 Jan 2018 13:38 - +1
Good luck OP I am of no help but I truly wish you and your family the best. <3

i made an account just to comment here, i dont want to alarm anyone and it could be nothing but i live in downtown jc grove area and on my way to the path train today there was a purple coat just hanging on a bike outside of the dominos on first street i thought it was strange but figured a drunk person mustve left it since it was fairly warm on friday night.. like i said i do not want to alarm you but maybe its worth looking at serveillance in the area? it was still hanging there when i got home about an hour ago.. if its there in the morning i will send a picture
14 Jan 2018 16:00 - +1
If she's religious maybe religious buildings? She's by the WTC, theres some churches down there that I know of, im sure there are other religious buildings as well. That or maybe she got on a train meant for upstate or LI or somewhere else. Someone mentioned she was basically near the Port Authority, def. ask them to be on the lookout if you haven't already.

I wish I could think her clothing but I strongly think more pictures would assist.

Pretty sure I've seen her at a hairdressers in the eastern suburbs. HMU for details
14 Jan 2018 13:12 - +-8
i have a question: it's 11th january, not 1st of ~~october~~ november. so it is only a few days since last seen? in my country there would not be any legal way to initiate a legal search for a person, since the time interval of her being last seen up until now would be too small. it would be only possible, if there is a concrete suspicion of criminal activity involved. my question would be: is that the case? i don't know how it is on your site of the pond. /edit: i'm stupid regarding month names; see below.
14 Jan 2018 11:37 - +-11
She was likely walking to her NJ Transit Union station like she does every day.
