    Default Looking for a friend do you know her?

    Try adding Velma as her first name (Velma Francine Dent) as a deep search option. Standard search on bing.com show her first name as 'Velma'.

    Or just someone you have lost contact with over the years?

    I hope you’re able to catch up with her. Sometimes people just want to take off and not be found. The thought has crossed my mind once or twice.

    3501 Woodward is the Orchestra Tower seniors' building at Woodward & Stimson. Perhaps someone there may have some information about her whereabouts.

    I live in Chicago and have sent letters to her apartment & Bert's place. No reply. Phone # disconnnected. No return mail. "worried".

    Perhaps she passed away. Per what I could find she was over 60. But usually that turns up under death records, many of which are public.

    At least we have the power of Dyes to delve into the end of the lady's life.

    Me, there's nothing to see here, move along.

    Not being disrespectful are you? I mean, somebody is trying to locate someone. Hope you never find yourself in the same position....

    No, I'm not. But with easy access to public records, while being monitored by 300+ corporations online, for eternity, some people are desperately trying to minimize their public lives.

    Valid point, I have to say.

    I found this Facebook page where they gave Francine a birthday party a couple years ago. Maybe you could contact the creator?

    When will this thread be locked/deleted? It's unsavory and not in the realm of the site. This is not a singles/personals site.

    I'm pretty sure there's a V'ger Star Trek joke in there somewhere.

    It is her. Here's a 2014 video of her in a storytelling event at the Wright Museum of AA History. Clearly the same person, and I do recognize her from Bert's.

    I notice that one version of that video, which seems to come from about a year ago, was posted by the Maryland Dept. of Aging. So it's possible that she's just left our area.

    This is not the first time someone has asked for help locating someone on here. And what is "unsavory" about someone trying to find and old friend that they are concerned about? Also, the woman was a stand up comedian in Detroit, so she's not an unknown

    Yes that's her. But I talked to her 3-4 months ago. She may be in hiding....who knows? I wrote Bert's, no reply. Oh well.
