Woman Missing for 42 Years Found Living in Nursing Home

Florence “Flora” Stevens, a woman from upstate New York, went missing on August 3, 1975, after her husband dropped her off for an appointment with her doctor at Community General Hospital. She was amazingly found in Massachusetts after 42 years, living in an assisted nursing facility.

The 78-year-old woman now suffers from dementia and has great difficulty speaking. This makes it difficult for investigators to put together what happened to her during the period of time she was missing.

Flora was an employee at the Catskills Resort when she vanished. Her husband reported her missing after he dropped her off for a doctor’s appointment and returned to the Monticello hospital, unable to locate her.

The exact reason why she went to the hospital was never established, although her husband may have been worried about her bouts of memory loss or amnesia. Flora’s husband died in 1985 without ever knowing what happened to his wife or whether she was still alive.

 

Because of the lack of leads, Stevens’ case sat cold for decades and she was never declared dead. Investigators repeatedly reviewed the missing person case but without any leads or evidence, they didn’t get far.

Unidentified skeletal remains of a woman were once found in Orange County on Sept. 15 which closely resembled Stevens, but without a DNA sample from Stevens or one of her close relatives, authorities had nothing to compare the remains to.

Detectives finally found a lead when a woman with the last name Harris was discovered using Flora Steven’s social security number in a Massachusetts nursing facility. Investigators received confirmation from the facility’s staff that the number belonged to a resident named Flora Harris who had been living there since 2001.

According to the Telegraph, Sheriff Mike Schiff sent out a press release stating, “It’s not too often we get to solve a 42-year-old missing person. The main thing is we know Flora is safe.”

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
