Endangered Missing Elderly Female

Nancy Wells was last seen by her family at her residence at 4:50 p.m. when she left in her vehicle to pick up dinner at the Outback Steakhouse on Sparks Blvd. Nancy never picked up the to-go meal at the restaurant. Nancy does not have a phone and it is believed something may have happened to her due to her medical condition. She requires oxygen twenty-four hours a day and utilizes emergency inhalers when needed.


Nancy is described as a seventy-four-old female, standing five feet four inches and weighing 200 pounds. An old photo is attached to this media release, however she now has grey hair and her appearance is older and heavier. Nancy is driving a black 2011 Honda CRV with Nevada plates 084XRD. The family has driven the routes Nancy may have taken and checked the local hospitals but were unable to locate Nancy prior to police arrival.


The Sparks Police Department asks our community to be aware of the vehicle Nancy is driving and to report either the vehicle or Nancy if spotted.
