(WWJ) Detroit Police are searching for a woman who went for a walk a few weeks ago, and disappeared.

Shalisa Wade, 46, was last seen on Friday, November 13, at approximately 4:30 p.m., in the 2000 block of W. Grand Blvd. walking eastbound toward the Lodge Freeway.

Wade did not return to her home in the 800 block of Oakman Blvd. She has not been seen or heard from since and her caretaker is "very concerned," according to police.
