Authorities search for missing L.A. woman, 81

The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating an 81-year-old woman who went missing Thursday.

Enolia Mims of South Los Angeles left her home about 8 a.m. Thursday to go to work in the San Fernando Valley. She was last seen by her employer after she finished cleaning a house in the 20000 block of Elkwood Street in Canoga Park. She presumably was headed home, but has not been seen since.

Mims is described as a 5-foot-2, 105-pound African American woman with gray hair and brown eyes. She wears eyeglasses. Mims was last seen wearing a plum-colored track suit and a knit cap. She drives a blue 2002 Jeep Cherokee with the California license plate 6MIK145.

Anyone with information is asked to call the LAPD at (213) 996-1800 or (877) 527-3247.

Hey employer... suspect him or her.

Why on earth is an 81 year old woman cleaning houses? Honestly, the way that America treats its senior citizens disgusts me. I pray that she's okay.
