Search continues for Greenpoint woman with Alzheimer's

Posted: Updated:

Loved ones are continuing to search for a woman with Alzheimer's disease from Greenpoint.

Czeslawa Konefal's family says she has been missing since Sunday when she didn't return home after church.

"She has a strict schedule, she goes to church every day, comes home, she watches the clock ridiculously," said Konefal's daughter, Boguna Skidmore.

She was caught on surveillance video walking down the sidewalk after church, and that's the last they say they have seen of her.

Her daughters say they are worried, and that she doesn't have any identification, doesn't speak English and hasn't taken her medication since Saturday.

"She is my life, she is my family, she is my heart," said Boguna Skidmore.

While they have canvassed the neighborhood in flyers, they say they are also relying on their faith. "She is guided by him because if she wasn't, she would have already been found in worse circumstances," said Konefal's daughter Teresa Linero.

They say she was last seen wearing a black coat with fur, black pants, black shoes, a brown hat, and glasses.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police.
