Background & Family Information

-  Patricia, an only child, was born in Jersey City, NJ and moved to Bogota when she was 5 years old in 1963.

-  Pat's dad, John Marri, passed away in the early 1980s after a long 13 year bout with Alzheimer's disease.  He was at Greystone Memorial Park when he passed away.

- Patricia has a business background and is a 1977 graduate of Taylor Business Institute and if she got past the hurdle of obtaining her medication and is possibly working, it may be as a secretary or more likely as a receptionist due to her weak computer skills.

Medical History

- Around age 12, after an accident Pat developed Epilepsy, a seizure disorder.

- The seizures were mostly under control using two medications, Dilantin 400 mg daily and Phenobarbital 150 mg daily.  At the time of Patricia’s disappearance, her seizures were getting more frequent.  She had gran mal major seizures in each of the prior three spring seasons (1998, 1999 and in 2000).  Pat even had a second seizure on November 5, 2000, just 3 ˝ months before she disappeared.  She was not driving at the time of her disappearance due to the November seizure.  She was depressed about not being able to drive.

- Pat was concerned she might be getting the start of Alzheimers as she was forgetting everyday things.  We did not think much of it because it happens to everyone.
