—Cook County Sheriff’s Police are investigating the disappearance of a 68-year-old mentally ill woman who has been missing since May 9, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.
Marcella Somerville, originally of South Carolina, traveled to the Maine Township area to visit her Glenview-based sister. Somerville, who is diagnosed with schizophrenia, became upset when told she eventually would need to return home to South Carolina. She then fled the house and has not been seen since.
