    TN - Shelby Ridley, 74, Morristown, 1 Nov 2011

    Itís been nearly two weeks since anyone can confirm seeing 74-year-old Shelby Loraine Ridley.

    The last time anyone spoke with Ridley was on Nov. 1 when she talked to her brother John Britt around 4 p.m.

    Ridley was later seen leaving her home on Circle Drive in Morristown with a female whose identity hasnít been released publicly.

    LE know who she left with, yet no one knows if she was wearing blue jeans or pajamas? Seems a bit odd.

    So someone actually saw Shelby leave her home....Circle Drive does seem a tad remote.

    It is odd they aren't entirely sure what she was wearing, unless the person that saw her leaving didn't get a clear sight of her walking to vehicle she left in???

    I wonder when they will release details about the mystery person??

    They must know WHO picked her up or they'd be asking for help from the public in figuring that out - no?



    Where are you Shelby Ridley?

    snipped from article linked above:

    "The family has called every hospital in the phone book," said Sgt. Kevin Gentry with the Hamblen County Sheriffís Department.
    I've decided it's possible Shelby wasn't feeling well....hence possibly in her pj's?

    Perhaps Shelby told someone she wasn't feeling well and hopefully went so far as to say so an so was coming to give her a ride to the hospital?

    Don't believe EVERYTHING you think.

    also snipped from the article....

    Britt told Gentry that he usually talks to his sister two or three times a week, but he hasn’t heard from her since Nov. 1.


    I must be wrong then in thinking maybe Shelby wasn't feeling well...

    If that was the case surely someone would have checked on her before yesterday...

    Hey RJA00 - maybe we should start a scanner thread for Shelby here: Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    RIP
