Former Model B. Smith Found After Missing Overnight

Pioneering former model and famed restaurateur Barbara Smith, known to many as B. Smith, has been found after being reported missing on Long Island.  Earlier this year, Smith revealed that she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s after suffering from symptoms of memory loss and confusion for years.  According to Fox News, she was reported missing by her husband and business partner Dan Gasby who reported that she had last been seen around 8p.m. on Tuesday wearing a blue sweater, pink shirt, jeans and black sneakers after arriving from New York City on a jitney.

CBS News put out a Tweet and the New York ABC affiliate reported that Smith was found in a Manhattan diner.  Police in Sag Harbor confirmed that a missing person investigation had been opened regarding Smith, but they have not yet confirmed the reports that she has been found.  According to the New York ABC affiliate, the driver of the jitney Smith rode on reported that she had got off at the Sag Harbor stop, but friends reported that she had reboarded the jitney.

Smith is known for being one of the first Black models to appear on the cover of Mademoiselle.  After that ground breaking achievement, she became a noted restaurateur, designer and decorator.  She opened her first restaurant in 1986 in New York City and later opened two more.  After nearly 20 years in business, Smith closed her restaurants earlier this year.

There is no word yet on whether Smith’s Alzheimer’s played a role in her disappearance.  When she announced her diagnosis, she stated that she was doing her best to remain positive, saying, “I think the future’s going to be fine.  I’m going to do my best to make it work out for me and for as many people that I can possibly help, too.”
