Report: Missing Woodlawn Woman Found Dead in Leakin Park

Mary Tisdale, who police reported missing last month from her assisted living facility, died from exposure to the elements, according to WBFF-TV.

Mary Tisdale, the woman who went missing from her assisted living facility last month, was found in Leakin Park last weekend.

She had died from exposure to the elements and hypothermia, according to a report by WBFF-TV.

On Sept. 25, Baltimore County police said Tisdale, 62, walked away from her residence and was quickly reported missing on Sept. 20.

Tisdale suffered from dementia, according to a news release. She didn't tell anyone where she was going.

"She suffers from medical conditions that may cause confusion, and she may not recall where she lives," the Sept. 25 release stated.

She walked away without telling them where she was going, police say. Assisted living doesn't keep them behind locked doors.

I thought assisted living places kept an eye out for these special needs residents! they certainly charge enough for their services...I thought safety was in the menu...guess not...huh? this is so unfortunate and avoidable!

Mary Tisdale is my Mom. And the whole situation should have been avoided. It doesn't make scene. And they say no one was negligent and no foul play. The foul play came in when she was found dead
