NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police say a former Queens nursing home director is facing charges after she allegedly covered up the disappearance of a missing patient with dementia.

Authorities say 43-year-old Julie Clifford of Mount Vernon, falsified records to cover-up the disappearance of 74-year-old resident Alan Frazer, who suffers from dementia.

Frazer was being cared for at the Bishop Charles Waldo Maclean Nursing Home in Far Rockaway. The day after he went missing, Clifford allegedly changed Frazer's medical records to say he left against medical advice.

Investigators say Clifford should never called 911.

"I have no tolerance for individuals who neglect seniors in the care of a nursing home," said Attorney General Schneiderman. "Our most vulnerable citizens deserve high-quality care and peace of mind. Because this individual acted recklessly and unlawfully, someone who needs care is missing."

Clifford faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Authorities ask anyone with information on the whereabouts of Alan Frazer to call Missing Persons at 1-800-346-3543.
