xx Louise Poe - Dec. 28, 2005 - GA

A massive search involving ATVs, police dogs, and a helicopter resumed Thursday morning for a 78-year-old woman who wandered from an assisted living facility in Woodstock Wednesday night.

Investigators said Louise Poe has a number of health problems, including dementia and asthma. Poe is 4 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs just 100 pounds. She left the Woodstock Estates Assisted Living Center on Professional Way about 7 p.m. by popping out the screen to her bedroom window. She then unlocked a fence that surrounds the facility.

"It's a very heavily wooded area, and there's a lot of woods there. There's also a river that runs behind the woods that we're concerned about. We've checked that river and we've had an ATV going up and down the banks of that river all night," Sgt. Dan King of the Woodstock Police Department told 11Alive News.

During the night, about 50 police, fire personnel, and volunteers helped search for Poe in what is the second time she has wandered from the facility. This time, investigators were more concerned because of her health and the cooling temperatures.

"We're a little concerned because of weather. The wind's blowing, the temperature's dropping," said Sgt. King.

When Poe left the facility a few months ago, she was found down the street at a drug store. Searchers who worked until 2:30 a.m. and resumed their hunt for her at daybreak hoped for a similar outcome this time.

"She doesn't have any medication with her. We don't even know what she's wearing, if she has a jacket on. We don't know if she has shoes. We don't know anything," Sgt. King said.

A statewide lookout has been placed to all jurisdictions as well as to hospitals and train and bus stations. Anyone who thinks they have seen Poe is asked to call the Woodstock Police Department at 770-592-6030.

xx Nursing Home Employee Charged In Missing Woman Cas
« Reply #3 on: Jan 5th, 2006, 11:50am »

WOODSTOCK -- Police have charged a nursing assistant with reckless conduct in connection with the disappearance of an 80-year old woman from an assisted living center in Woodstock.

Woodstock police arrested 41-year old Rose Jean of Mableton yesterday on the misdemeanor charge. She was taken to the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center, where bond was set at $680.

She is accused of failure to respond to the alarm set off when Louise Poe climbed out of her window at Woodstock Estates the night of December 28. The woman has NOT been found.

Jean, a certified nursing assistant, is NO longer employed at Woodstock Estates.

Police, using search dogs and helicopters, looked for Poe the night of her disappearance and the following day. Police say the search did not begin until an hour after her disappearance, due to the center staff's decision to search on their own before calling police. Poe wandered away from the center two weeks before this disappearance, but was found at a drug store about a mile away.

Poe suffers from dementia and asthma.

xx Still Looking for Missing Woman
« Reply #4 on: Jan 5th, 2006, 8:25pm »

A day after a nursing assistant was charged with negligence, the woman who was in her care, 79-year-old Louise Poe, is still missing from Woodstock.

Poe has been missing since she left through the window of an assisted living home a week ago Wednesday.

Poe suffers from dementia and was living at the Woodstock Estates assisted living home, supposedly in a secure area. But she got out last Wednesday evening through a window in her room.

Woodstock Police and Cherokee County conducted exhaustive searches that proved fruitless. Poe's daughter is relying on someone recognizing her from a picture that is posted around Woodstock, and throughout the media.

“She just doesn’t have a good memory, and if she gets upset, she may not even remember her name,” said Sharon Taylor, Poe’s daughter.

On Wednesday, Woodstock Police charged a certified nursing assistant who was in charge of Poe's care with reckless conduct.

It has been one week since Poe walked away from the assisted living home. And though the arrest is news, it does not shed any light on her whereabouts.

“And that’s the most important thing. We want to know where she is,” Taylor said.

Taylor isn’t even close to losing hope that her mother is okay. She says she knows her too well.

“She's just a feisty little old lady i guess. she's a survivor? she's definitely a survivor. and she's very friendly and outgoing,” said Taylor. “She likes crowds you know, watching people walk by and cars going by. I mean she could be sitting on a curb watching people you know, and she'd be happy.”

Taylor says while hope springs eternal, so do concerns.

According to investigators, last week marks the second time Poe has escaped the assisted living facility through a window. The first time she left, she was found a mile away in a drug store.

xx Missing woman s family fights despair
« Reply #5 on: Feb 16th, 2006, 09:46am »

By Angela M. Jones

Cherokee Tribune Staff Writer

Hope is beginning to dim for the family of a Woodstock senior citizen who has been missing since last December.

Sheran Taylor, daughter of Louise Poe, said the family is trying to remain optimistic about her mother's whereabouts and condition, but the length of time makes it difficult.

"It's been seven weeks, and we haven't heard anything, positive or negative," Ms. Taylor said. "It's kind of depressing, but I'm trying to stay hopeful that she's all right."


Ms. Poe, 79, has been missing since Dec. 28, when she climbed out of the window of her room at the Woodstock Estates Assisted Living Center shortly after 7 p.m.

Staff members from the facility searched the grounds and the Woodstock Police Department conducted three searches in the immediate area, with assistance from the Cherokee County Search and Rescue Team, a Georgia State Patrol helicopter and local volunteers.

Woodstock Detective Sgt. Dan King said he, along with Sgts. Will Merrill and Kevin Culpepper and Detective Kristen Murphy, want to search an area of swampy ground behind the assisted living center off Highway 92. They are waiting for a break in the weather before beginning the search.

"We don't think she's back there in those woods, but we want to double check, just to be sure," King said.

He also is in the process of interviewing residents and others in the immediate vicinity of Woodstock Estates Assisted Living Center.

"We're talking to anyone who was in the area the night she left the facility," he said. "Maybe someone saw or heard something that can help us to locate her."

King recently visited Ms. Poe's hometown of Anniston, Ala., in the hope she had made her way there, or might be en route to the area, where she has friends and family. He talked with several of Ms. Poe's relatives and friends, but turned up no information as to her whereabouts.


Ms. Poe suffers from dementia and had wandered away from the assisted living center two weeks before her December disappearance, but was found at a nearby drugstore.

The window Ms. Poe used to escape had an alarm that sent a signal to a pager whenever it was opened, but the nursing assistant on call is accused of not responding to the alert or investigating the cause of the alarm. She since has been charged with reckless conduct and was fired by the assisted living center.

The center on Jan. 8 began offering a $10,000 reward for any information that would lead to Ms. Poe's safe return, but no new leads were generated by the reward. The center also hired a private investigator, who last month helped with the search.

Mrs. Taylor said the family still is putting up flyers, but aside from that, they are putting their faith in King and the Woodstock Police to manage the search for their mother.

"We just keep waiting to hear something from Detective King. It's pretty much in the Woodstock Police Department's hands at this point," said Mrs. Taylor, who lives in Ball Ground.

"You can only do what you can with what you've got," Mrs. Taylor added. "If they don't have any leads or anything, well I guess they're just beating the bushes now and hoping something pops out."

Ms. Poe is white, 4 foot, 10 inches tall, between 90 to 100 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at (770) 592-6030 or Cherokee 911 at (678) 493-4080.

xx Police unable to find elderly Woodstock woman
« Reply #6 on: Mar 18th, 2006, 11:16pm »

By Erika B. Neldner

There are still no signs of an elderly woman who went missing Dec. 28 last year, according to Woodstock police.

Louise Poe, 79, (right) climbed out of her first-floor window at the Woodstock Estates Assisted Living Facility off of Ga. 92 at about 7:30 p.m., officials said. She had been put to bed around 7 p.m., officials said.
Poe’s daughter, Sheran Taylor of Ball Ground, said she’s concerned her mother has been gone so long but still holds on to some hope that she’s still alive.

“We’re still holding out hoping she’s alive,” Taylor said. “As long as she hasn’t been found that means maybe she is still out there alive.”

Police haven’t had any leads come in from the public, said Detective Sgt. Dan King of the Woodstock Police Department.

He doesn’t think a crime has been committed and believes Poe escaped from the facility, King said.

Since her disappearance, police have conducted about six searches, King said. During the first and second searches, conducted right after Poe disappeared, police used tracking and cadaver dogs to locate the woman, King said. They also utilized the Cherokee County Search and Rescue Team as well as the Georgia State Patrol helicopter. The most recent search of the Ga. 92 corridor was held two weeks ago.

“We’ve looked everywhere,” King said.

Police have also traveled to Alabama to interview family members there. That trip did not turn up any information of Poe’s whereabouts, police said.

In January, police arrested Rose Jean, a certified nursing assistant who was allegedly responsible for responding to a pager that would indicate a patient’s window had been opened, King said. Jean, 41, allegedly did not respond to the pager and was charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct for her actions, King said.

Taylor said she recently had her children come to visit, an event where her mother would usually have been present. She said it was depressing because her mother loves those types of family functions.

“I just had my children in from out of state and that was depressing because she always came to all our family functions,” Taylor said. “She really liked to socialize. She really liked to have family gatherings. She was really missed.”

A $10,000 reward still stands for information leading to Poe’s exact location, according to the Web site devoted to finding Poe.

The reward was offered by the assisted living facility from which Poe disappeared.

A spokesperson from the facility could not be reached for comment at press time.

Poe is four feet, ten inches tall, weighs about 100 pounds and has black and gray hair and brown eyes. She suffers from asthma and dementia, and police say at times she doesn’t know who she is.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Cherokee County 911 at (678) 493-4080 or the Woodstock Police Department at (770) 592-6030.

xx Body may be that of woman with dementia
« Reply #7 on: Jul 19th, 2006, 1:15pm »

Woodstock police are hoping to identify a body found in the woods off of Ga. 92.

The body could be that of 79-year-old Louise Poe, who climbed out of her bedroom window last year at the Woodstock Estates Assisted Living Center.

Poe had dementia and a habit of taking long walks.

Lt. Dan King said police have asked Poe's family for her dental records. Poe climbed out of the window on Dec. 28, prompting a search by dozens of police officers and firefighters. The search was later scaled back.

A surveyor found the body in the woods Wednesday morning behind an Arby's restaurant, King said.

Woodstock police later charged a certified nursing assistant with reckless conduct for failing to answer the alarm in Poe's room.

Michael Goldberg, attorney for Poe's family, said the family was trying to get the dental records for police.

"Someone was found that may or may not match," Goldberg said. "This is very emotional for the family. They always hoped she would be found alive."

In an email from Louise's daughter, she confirmed that the dental records are those of Louise Poe. Please keep Louise's family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
