Missing Adult

Wednesday, September 12, 2012, 7:55 PM [RELEASE AT WILL]


On 9/12/12 at approximately 3:00pm, CSPD received a call for assistance in locating a missing/overdue adult. Mary Griffin, age 80, was last seen at her home on Northcrest Drive at 11:00am this morning. She left for a doctor's appointment at the former Penrose Community Hospital building, but never arrived for her appointment. As of 6:30pm, none of her family or friends have heard from her and area and location searches by uniformed officers and members of Mary's family and friends have not been successful.

The CSPD is asking for assistance in locating Mrs. Mary Griffin, a black female, 5-2, 125lbs with gray hair. She was last seen driving a 1994 Tan Lexus, 4-Dr Sedan, with CO license plates KCG9101 wearing a short, dark brown hair wig (so she may appear younger). She was also wearing a light sweater type jacket with a black collar, unknown color slacks and prescription eyeglasses.

Mrs. Griffin does have a medical condition that can cause her to become disoriented if she does not eat. Search efforts are continuing. No suspicious activity surrounding her disappearance has been discovered at this time. Members of the Missing Persons Unit are responding to assist the Patrol Investigation.


Mrs. Griffin has family in the Denver area and it is unknown whether she would travel to that area.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts should contact the Colorado Springs Police Department Communications Center at 444-7000.


A recent photograph of Mrs. Griffin is attached to this release.
