Volusia County deputies say 79-year-old Rose Bruce disappeared sometime after 10 o'clock Monday night from her San Marco Apartment in Ormond Beach. Bruce finished her shift at the Ormond Beach Walmart, went home and started making dinner.
She was supposed to pick her daughter-in-law up from work at Walmart at 11 o'clock. When Bruce didn't show up, her daughter-in-law walked home and found Bruce's front door unlocked, and smoke filled the apartment as the smoke detector went off.
Bruce's daughter-in-law called 911. She said, "The house was full of smoke, the dinner that was in the oven was burnt. Her purse was on table. The groceries were on the table, but her and her car are gone."
Bruce drives a 1997 blue Honda Accord. Her family says she had no known medical issues or behavior that would make her just take off on her own.
