PHUKET: A woman with Alzheimer's disease who had wandered away from home was killed in a hit-and-run motorbike accident in Thalang last night.

Pranit Parteep Na Talang, 75, first went missing from her home in Ban Don at about 2pm yesterday afternoon.

“My mother had Alzheimer's, but she could walk well for her age and often went missing because of her illness,” said her son, 49-year-old Manas Parteep Na Talang.
