Authorities announced a $10,000 reward Wednesday for information leading to the whereabouts of a woman who went missing in Fallbrook last month.

Elena Carlotta Roy reportedly walked away from her Woodcreek Drive home on the afternoon of Nov. 3, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. She was 83 at the time, although her 84th birthday passed since she disappeared.

Despite intensive searches of the rural community by deputies, neighbors and search-and-rescue volunteers, her whereabouts remain unknown, according to the department, which repeated requests for area residents to check for her on their properties.

There was no evidence of foul play, sheriff’s Lt. Thomas Seiver said.


Roy, who suffers from dementia and wandered away from her home on one occasion last year, was described as 5 feet 4 inches tall and 115 pounds, with brownish gray hair and brown eyes. She has also gone by the names of Elena Charlotta Lorea and Elena Charlotte Roy.

The Sheriff’s Department has released a video of Roy, taken from a Fallbrook grocery store one day before she disappeared. Authorities believe she was wearing the same clothes the day she disappeared: black pants, a gray-and-white short-sleeved shirt, blue-and-brown shoes, a tan beanie, a brown purse, and glasses with tan frames.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts was asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Unit, which investigates cases involving missing persons, at (858) 285-6286 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
