The Citrus County Commission has proclaimed June 15 as 2019 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day in Citrus County.
All five commissioners signed the position, as an effort to show that older adults deserve to be treated with respect and dignity to enable them to serve as leaders, mentors,
volunteers and vital participating members of our communities;
The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office is still looking for a county resident who went missing two years ago.
That resident is Carol McHugh, who vanished on June 8, 2017.
McHugh, a 72-year old mother and grandmother from Inverness, suffering from memory issues, completely disappeared without a trace in 2017 from her home while she was on a walk, and left without any food, water, or medications.
