BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Officials are considering suspending the search for a 74-year-old woman who went missing in the foothills northwest of Boulder almost two weeks ago.

Ken Rosales, Boulder County's emergency services coordinator, tells The Daily Camera ( ) that crews will likely decide Monday whether or not to suspend the search for Patricia Wallace of Lafayette. The woman was hiking with a group of friends in the Camp Dick area July 3 when she decided to take an alternate route she thought would be easier.

Wallace, who may be suffering from early stages of dementia, is 5-foot-5, 135 pounds, with dark brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a big floppy hat and often hikes with trekking poles.
