Kent police are asking the public’s help in finding a 64-year-old developmentally disabled woman who disappeared in Kent on Feb. 3.

Barbara Stevenson has bipolar disorder, a heart defect and diabetes, police said. She is often delusional and did not take her daily medications or personal belongings with her when she went missing. Police said family members fear Stevenson’s mental condition makes her an easy target for manipulation.

“We are understandably concerned for Stevenson and so is her family,” Kent police Det. Melanie Robinson said in a press statement released Monday.  “This is out of the ordinary for her, and with her mental instability it makes her that much more vulnerable.”

Stevenson is African American with a light complexion. She is about 5 feet 2 inches tall, 135 pounds and usually walks with a cane. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 911.
