Julie Madsen (formal name is Julia) age 72, has been missing one month as of Thursday, July 23. Julie has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, a mild case according to relatives. An exhaustive search effort using more than 100 people has not turned up any substantial leads.

Guy Madsen, Julie's son, is asking for help from the public.

Julie had been to the casinos in Atlantic City the week before she disappeared. Her son hopes that maybe someone in the AC area may have information to help bring this search to an end.

There is a $25,000 reward being offered by her family for information that leads to Julie's whereabouts.

Julia was last seen on Thursday June 25, 2009 at approximately 7:00 p.m. at her beach house in the South Seaside Park section of Berkeley Township, NJ. She told her husband that she was going for a walk on the beach and she never returned.

Julia was last seen wearing a pink shirt, white pants, and white sneakers. She does have moles on her face. She is wearing a diamond engagement ring and wedding band, silver watch on her right wrist, and a gold/silver bracelet on her left wrist.

The Berkeley Township Police Department and the Ocean County Sheriff's Department have been leading the investigation with substantial assistance from Detective Jack Donegan of the New Jersey State Police Missing Person Unit.

The US Coast Guard and the FBI have also been assisting in this investigation.
