Update: Multiple reports state that former model and restaurateur B. Smith has been found. New York WABC reported that she was found at a Manhattan diner.
Former model and restaurateur B. Smith has been missing since yesterday evening, MyFoxNY reports. The 64-year-old is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and had been last seen exiting a Hamptons jitney Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET, said her husband Dan Gasby.
Smith, who was the first Black model to land a cover of Mademoiselle magazine, has been open about her struggle with Alzheimer’s in recent months.
“I’m going to do my best to make it work out for me, and for as many people that I can possibly help too,” she said in an interview with CBS in June.
Anyone who sees Smith is asked to contact the Sag Harbor police at (631) 725-0058.
