Missing Titusville woman found safe in Titus Landing

A 76-year-old woman reported missing from Titus Landing was found safe Friday, according to the Titusville Police Department.

Around 2:30 p.m., police responded to a call from the woman's concerned partner. She disappeared after receiving services at a business in the mall, located at the intersection of South Washington Avenue and Harrison Street.

TPD officers immediately began a door-to-door search of Titus Landing businesses, in coordination with the Brevard County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) STAR Helicopter Unit.

The missing woman, who is part of the BCSO Project Life Saver program, was wearing a tracking device that helps locate people with cognitive impairments, such as dementia. The tracking bracelet helped officers pinpoint his location in the shopping area.

The woman was found near the movie theater less than an hour after the initial report, guided by signals from her tracking bracelet connected to STAR helicopter personnel.

“Responding to a missing community member immediately becomes our highest priority,” said TPD Acting Patrol Lt. Mark Jennings. “This positive outcome can be attributed to the quick action of Titus Landing Enterprises, BCSO and our TPD officers, who invested multiple resources to successfully locate the missing woman.
