St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office searching for Arabi woman reported missing Aug. 15

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help finding a 59-year-old Arabi woman who was last seen earlier this month.

Sheriff James Pohlmann said Denise Young left her home in the 600 block of Community Street in Arabi on Aug. 4, and has not returned home or been heard from since.

Young, who family members say has a history of mental health issues and has left before without notifying anyone, was reported missing by a family member on Aug. 15.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Young is asked to contact the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office (504) 271-2501.
