Deputy quickly finds Alzheimer's patient

Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR

Quick work by a family member and a Mariposa County Sheriff's deputy helped locate an elderly Alzheimer's patient today.

Donna Mahler, age 82, walked from her residence at 10373 Fiske Road in northern Mariposa County. Her son, John Mahler, noticed her missing from the residence at approximately 3 a.m. and began searching for her. He could not find his mother.

Mariposa County Sheriff's Deputy Ed Sinclair located Mahler on a neighboring property situated north of her residence. She was confused but medically sound. Donna was returned back to her residence and left under the care of her son.
