‘Me.’ Woman With Dementia, Missing for 42 Years, Recognizes Herself in Photo

(MONTICELLO, N.Y.) — The 78-year-old woman’s mind was clouded by dementia. But she recognized the brunette with a slight smile in the faded picture from the 1970s detectives showed her.

“Me,” the woman uttered in a voice barely above a whisper.

The picture helped investigators visiting an assisted-living facility near Boston last month verify they had finally found Flora Stevens.
