Police are asking for the public's help in finding a 55-year-old Hayward woman who was reported missing on Friday, August 27. Donna Rytkonen, 55, is considered "at risk" as she may be depressed. Rytkonen has been diagnosed with Schizo-affective disorder. She is identified as a white woman, 5'4" tall, weighing 225 pounds, with blue eyes and gray hair with surgery scars on her ankles.
According to Lt. Roger Keener, Hayward PD, Donna has no recent history of voluntarily absence, however, she does have a distant history of such. Donna residence is a board and care home at 22240 Montgomery Street in Hayward. "She left the care home between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. Donna has done this before but in earlier instances she used to come back for breakfast or dinner, but this time she didn't," said Loreta Dulay of the Montgomery Care Home.
According to Lt. Keener, Rytkonen has not taken her medications since the evening of August 26 and does not have any medications on her person. Clothing worn at the time of her departure is unknown; no one at the care home saw her leave. Rytkonen possibly has her bus pass with her and has no trouble using public transportation.
Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to contact the Montgomery Care Home at (510) 886-1813 or the nearest police agency, or Hayward police at (510) 293-7000.
