Entrepreneur B. Smith Missing In The Hamptons
According to MyFoxNY reports:
Legendary model and restaurateur B. Smith is missing, according to her husband, Dan Gasby.Smith, 64, who revealed earlier this year that she is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, was last seen in Southampton, Long Island at about 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
Smith took a jitney from New York City to Sag Harbor where the couple has a home and got off in Southampton.
She was wearing a blue sweater, pink shirt, jeans and black sneakers.
Anyone who sees Smith or knows her whereabouts should contact police in Sag Harbor at 631-725-0058.
Thankfully, B. Smith was located later on in the evening. According to NYDN:
Pioneering former model B. Smith, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, was found Wednesday in Manhattan — a day after she vanished while heading out to the Hamptons.
Smith, who is 65, was located after she was spotted with a mystery woman at the La Parisienne Coffee House on 7th Ave. near 57th St., sources said.
“She was here with an older woman,” a waiter who served them told The Daily News. “They were just regular customers. They paid and left. She was normal.”
It was not immediately clear where Smith, one of the first African-American models to grace the cover of Mademoiselle, had spent the night — or what kind of shape she was in after her ordeal.
Nor was the identity of the woman that was with Smith known.
We’re glad that that she was found safe and sound.
