SOMIS, Calif. - The search is continuing for a third day for a missing Somis woman.

She was last seen Sunday afternoon at her home on Faircrest lane in Somis.

Search and rescue teams, as well as citizen volunteers have spent the last two days searching for 70-year old Judith “Judy” Wurtz.

Wurtz suffers from dementia, but is in good physical health.  The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department says she was last seen Sunday, after going for an afternoon walk.

Since Judy was first reported missing to the Sheriff’s Office, numerous resources have been brought into the area to search for Judy. On the ground, patrol deputies, patrol K9’s, search & rescue personnel and bloodhounds have covered a three-mile radius of the rural agricultural and residential areas of Somis. The Sheriff’s Aviation Unit and Unmanned Aerial System have searched from the sky during the evening and daylight hours. Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services issued a VC Alert message to residents in the Somis, Camarillo, Saticoy, and Moorpark area.

“She is a wonderful lady we have been together 57-years.  She is an outdoors person.  I am sure we are going to find her.  I just hope it is sooner than later,” said Dan Wurtz, Judy’s husband.

Judy is 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds.  She has grey hair and brown eyes and was believed to have been wearing a long sleeved denim shirt and jeans.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department says temperatures are expected to dip down into the 40’s again tonight and it is important she is found quickly. If you see Judy or believe you may have seen her in the area, please call the Sheriff’s Dispatch Center at (805) 654-9511 or dial 9-1-1.
