Police hope wallet found in field leads to missing Burlington woman

The Canadian Press | posted Tuesday, Apr 25th, 2017


Halton Region police hope the discovery of a wallet in a field can help lead them to a 79-year-old Burlington woman who has been missing since last year.

Helen Robertson, who has Alzheimer’s and is known to go on long walks, was last seen at her residence on Millcroft Park Drive, near Dundas Street and Walkers Line, on July 5, 2016.

On Monday, Burlington city workers found a brown leather wallet believed to belong to Robertson inside a fenced-in field in a city park.

Police believe the wallet was left there between last Friday and Monday after being found at some other location.

Police are appealing for the person who found it to tell them where it was found so they can conduct a further ground search for the elderly woman.

Robertson is white, five-foot-two and 110 pounds with white collar-length hair. She was believed to be wearing a red, long sleeved collared shirt and two different shoes at the time of her disappearance.
