She may say her name is Denise Johnson, which is her maiden name. She often says the phrase “I want to go home” when talking to anyone. She has trouble recognizing her family members.    A close friend of Denise said Denise was wearing an Apple air tag at the time but it only sends a ping within 33 feet of detection. 
  Medical Alert
It is reported that Denise has a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury,) has aggressive seizures and behaves in ways similar to a person with dementia. Denise is considered harmless, she has low cognitive and verbal skills, and is probably disoriented, confused and scared. According to her husband, her medications were left at home and her chances of seizures are very high without them.
