Deputies said Claudia Thomas was last seen at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday at her daughter's home in Deerfield Beach.

Thomas, who was not supposed to be driving because she suffers from dementia, got into her car and drove away.

She was last seen wearing a lavender dress and slippers.

Thomas is driving a 2003 silver Ford Taurus, with Florida license plate number L208GA.

If you have seen Thomas or the car, call Crimestoppers immediately at 954-493-TIPS.
