The Anchorage Police Department is looking for missing woman Karen Burr, 60. According to APD, Burr is “vulnerable.” The agency said there are “health concerns,” and on Saturday, the APD search team joined her family in looking for her.
She was last seen at her southwest Anchorage home near Northwood Street around 10 a.m. Friday, police said in a statement. Her husband told police he last saw her “reading the paper at home” just before he got in the shower.
“He took a shower and when he got out, she was gone,” police stated. “Burr had left all of her personal items at home including her purse, wallet, identification and cell phone; she made no indication of leaving or going anywhere.”
Police said family and friends checked multiple places, “including parks, shopping centers, and other areas of town but had no luck finding her.”
Burr is about 5-feet-3-inches tall, weighs 110 pounds and has short, curly brown and grey hair.
Anyone with information on Burr’s location is asked to call 907-786-8900.
