Friends and family members held a vigil Thursday evening for a Manhattan Beach woman with early onset Alzheimer's who has been missing since a trip to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Oct. 16.
Nancy Paulikas, 56, was separated from her family at the museum about 2:35 p.m. While her family thought she was in the restroom, video footage showed her leaving LACMA and walking west on Wilshire Boulevard.
Despite a county-wide search, she has not been found. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information about her whereabouts.
She had apparently never wandered away from her family before and she was not carrying a cellphone, ID or cash at the time.
Paulikas' husband Kirk Moody said family and friends have been searching for Paulikas for 33 days, with no luck. On Thursday they retraced her last known steps to raise awareness that she is still missing.
She is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds. She has light brownish-grey shoulder-length hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a red shirt with a white pattern, jeans and blue sneakers.
Anyone with information about Paulikas' whereabouts can call 310-650-7965.
