GLENVIEW, IL – Police in Cook County, IL are looking for 68-year-old Marcella Somerville, from Myrtle Beach.

Somerville has been missing since May 9, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart of the Cook County Sheriff's Office said. Somerville, who is diagnosed with schizophrenia traveled to the Maine Township area to visit her Glenview-based sister.
