Family of missing 89-year-old offers $5,000 reward for information

EVERETT — The family of an 89-year-old Everett woman who has been missing for nearly a month has posted a $5,000 reward for information.

Ethel A. O’Neil, 89, vanished July 16 while on an outing. She’d planned to go shopping at the Everett Mall, just a 3-mile drive from her home.

There is no new information in the investigation, Everett police spokesman Aaron Snell said Monday.

O’Neil was last seen driving in the area of 88th Place NE and 67th Avenue NE in Marysville, according to her family. They believe O’Neil, who has early signs of dementia, might have become lost.

She was driving a steel blue 1987 Chevy Nova, Washington license plate ADP6803. The car was built in a joint-venture manufacturing plant in California and may resemble a Toyota Corolla.

Anyone with information should call 911.
