For the second time this month, a Valley senior has gone missing, and police need your help to find her.

Theresa Zynda, 79, went out in the rain last night, and she never came home.

She left her house in a the 2005 Buick LeSabre about 8:30 last night, at the height of yesterday's storm, and police worry she may have gotten lost.

Zynda suffers from Alzheimer's disease and arthritis. She takes medication for both, and police say she doesn't have her medication with her.

She was last seen leaving a friend's house near Greenfield Road and Southern Avenue.

Zynda was last seen wearing a blue and white blouse, beige pants, and glasses. She's blond, has blue eyes, is about 5-foot-6 and weighs 140 pounds.

The license plate of the LeSabre is 916CAP.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Mesa Police Department.
