SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The family of a missing Arizona grandmother believes that she may be heading to San Diego.

On Monday, ABC10 News spoke to Aaron Richardson about his grandmother, Alice Fults, who was last seen on Friday morning in Chandler, Arizona.

"You'd never think this would happen to you and for it to happen and [to] somebody you know totally tears you apart," he told ABC10 News.

On Monday afternoon, Chandler Police confirmed that the 58-year-old stroke survivor and dementia patient got on a Greyhound bus on Friday morning that was bound for Los Angeles.

Her family says that she could be trying to get to San Diego which is where she grew up and where her sister still lives. "She's from Lakeside so she always talked about Lakeside, California and how she wanted to go back to Lakeside," said Richardson.

Fults has hearts with names tattooed on her legs and horseshoes tattooed on her arms. She has a drooping eyelid from her stroke and needs her seizure medication. Her family told ABC10 News that she left with her granddaughter's ID but not her own ID. She doesn't have a cell phone. Family added that she has a history of wandering off but never for more than a few hours.

"If you see this, Alice...I love you, grandma. Get some help, okay? Let us know you're okay," Richardson added.

Chandler Police have issued a silver alert and are working on notifying law enforcement in Southern California about her disappearance. You're asked to call police if you have any information to provide.
