LAKEWOOD, Colo. — The body of a 69-year-old Lakewood woman who was reported missing on Jan. 9 has been found, police said Thursday.

A senior alert was previously issued for Patricia Dilworth through the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) due to a cognitive issue.

According to that alert, Dilworth was last seen about 5 p.m. on Jan. 9 in the 8800 block of West Center Avenue in the Belmar area of Lakewood. That's east of South Garrison Street and south of West Alameda Avenue.

Family members asked for a welfare check because they couldn't reach her, according to Lakewood Police. When it was discovered she was not at home, the alert was issued.

In the weeks since she was last seen, police conducted multiple searches in areas where it was believed she may have been. Those searches were unsuccessful.

On Wednesday, however, detectives with Lakewood police conducted another check in the area of 6th and Wadsworth and located Dillworth's body.

At this time, no criminal activity is suspected in relation to her death.
