Sheriff's Office asks public for help in finding missing woman who suffers from dementia

SUN CITY CENTER — A statewide Silver Alert has been issued asking the public to help find a woman who suffers from dementia and has gone missing from her Sun City Center home.

Elizabeth Callarik, 84, a 5-foot-3-inch, 125-pound woman with gray hair and glasses, was last seen driving a 2007 red or maroon Toyota Corolla with the license plate U297CF.

She was last seen wearing a light blue blouse and faded jeans at a bowling alley called Alley at Southshore, 10221 Big Bend Road, around 12:30 p.m. Monday. She left her bowling game with friends to go pick up her husband at their home, Hillsborough County Sheriff's officials said.

That was the last time anyone had contact with her.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
