As you may have read in my previous post just hours ago, food and fashion icon B. Smith was reported as a missing person since last night. The 64 year-old has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s . Smith had been last seen in Southampton on Tuesday night when she arrived on a jitney from New York but failed to show up at her Sag Harbor home. This afternoon, she was spotted at La Parisienne Coffee House on 7th Avenue near 57th st. Fortunately, the proprietor recognized her and called the Sag Harbor police. As with Alzheimer’s, a lot of details are still vague here. How did she get back to NY? Where did she stay all night? As the story unfolds lets just pray “Alls well that ends well!”. So many cases of wandering end up tragically.
