Missing Marysville woman 'aware of her surroundings'
A Marysville woman who went missing last week with her 21-month-old son has less serious mental and hearing disabilities than previously reported, according to police.
Heather Till, 35, who moved to Yuba County from Sacramento about 10 months ago, is apparently a high school graduate, said Sgt. Chris Sachs of the Marysville Police Department.
"She is aware of her surroundings and makes conscious decisions," Sachs said. She is partially deaf.
The source of the new information about Till "has known her for quite some time," he said.
Till, who lives with a married couple at 623 F St., was seen Wednesday morning wearing a black leather jacket and pushing her son, Rylie Andrew Till, in a double stroller.
She has family in Sacramento and had been trying to reach her mother prior to her disappearance, according to someone who knew her locally, Sachs told the Appeal-Democrat.
She had plans that day to take a bus to the Social Security office in Yuba City, Sachs said.
Till is five-foot, four-inches tall, weighs 180 pounds and has blue eyes, brown shoulder-length hair and wears glasses.
