WATTS FLATTS – The search for a missing 74-year-old Village of Panama woman who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease is continuing Tuesday morning.

Chautauqua County Sheriff Deputies are working with New York State DEC Forest Rangers, volunteers and several area police and fire departments in the search for Diana Chase.

Chase was last seen walking on Blockville Watts Flatts Road, around 1:30 p.m. Sunday. She was last seen wearing blue pajama pants, a gray zip-up sweatshirt and walking with a cane.

Her grandchildren, Tanner Delahoy and Megan Chase, say they are not giving up hope.

“If you just see anything, just keep your eyes open if you are going to work, going to get milk, groceries, just keep your eyes open,” said Delahoy.”

“I just really hope somebody finds her or she finds her way back,” said Chase. “We really need her back, I miss her dearly.”

Crews said Chase is in need of medical attention and they believe she may still be in the area.
