TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
Her erratic driving is believed to have even
prompted a 911 call, but a Southern Arizona woman died in the desert
before authorities found her. Now, questionable judgment calls are being made after a driver dialed 911 on Sunland Gin Road in Pinal County near
the desert where Alzheimer's sufferer Mary Black's SUV was found, and she died.
"Totally in the other lane now.
Totally in the left lane going southbound," a 911 caller told Pinal County
"Okay, so in the opposite lane?"
the dispatcher asked the caller: "Yeah, they're bouncing from the fog line
on the right, clear over to the fog line on the left of the road now," he
The caller described a white SUV with the
same license plate as the one for Mary Black. She went missing a few
hours earlier on that day, Nov. 24, a Sunday. But the
Pinal County dispatcher didn't know that.
"I do have a deputy en route but he's
not directly, he's in the area right now, he's coming from a different area,"
the dispatcher later told the caller.
Black's Explorer was found a few days later,
about 17 miles south of where the call was made. Her body was discovered
in the desert nearby the next week. Pinal County Sheriff's Office
responded with this statement: "A citizen had called in the vehicle as being
driven recklessly. Pcso dispatch sent a deputy to try to locate the
vehicle but he couldn't find it. Hours later after Cochise (county)
entered the vehicle into (National Crime Information Center) they received a
delayed response indicating the plate had been ran by our office. When
Cochise called to inquire a dispatcher told them it had been a sound alike
plate, not the same plate. We are looking into how this error occurred."
This is one more incident in the case that
angers Black's daughter, Mary Ann Black.
"They had her. They had her and
they told our sheriff that it was a sound alike?" she said.
Mary Black suffered from Alzheimer's and a
Cochise County timeline showed that she had left the house several times
before. A Cochise County deputy first searched locally before the attempt
to locate went statewide five hours later.
Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels said he'd
be in Phoenix this week, and push for a silver alert system, which would be
similar to the Amber Alert for children.
