    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Officers fear Ms. Bennett was not dressed adequately to survive two nights of low temperatures and are hoping she found some type of shelter.

    GA - Arletha Bennett, 77, Waynesboro, 16 Jan 2014

    This is my hometown, and many of my friends are concerned. There is a rumor of possible foul play, but most of it (as far as I know) stems from the fact that she had on a medical boot - so, how far could she have actually wandered?

    Family and Friends Plea for Help to Find Missing Waynesboro Woman

    Waynesboro, GA - Waynesboro police are still searching for a missing woman with Alzheimer’s who disappeared late Thursday night. Police said 77-year old Arletha Bennett was last seen at her home near Herman Lodge Blvd.

    The local newspaper (according to the local paper's FB page, they are having a 5-mile radius search for her again today):

    MISSING PERSON

    Waynesboro police issued a Mattie’s Call early morning (Friday) after a retired teacher wandered away from her home on Herman Lodge Boulevard…

    ......“They found nothing,” the chief said, noting the sheriff’s office and other agencies have joined in the manhunt. He is now trying to secure horseback riders to scour the neighborhood and nearby woods.

    Another article from nearby Augusta:

    Waynesboro family asking for public's help finding their sister

    Jackson is asking for the community to get involved. At the press conference Sunday, he said, “I am begging the community to help. If you have not checked abandon cars or out buildings where she might be hiding, we are asking the community to do so in case she is there.”

    Former students help search for missing retired teacher

    Hundreds have been helping with the search efforts, but still, no sign of the former teacher. She taught 5th grade in the Burke County school system for 35 years. Many volunteers in the search party, like Missy Kelly, are former students.

    "I think she was a great role model to all of us. I own a day care center now and the impact from her and some of the other teachers had a lot to do with that," Kelly said.

    After 35 years of helping local students succeed, it's now the students who are gathering to help Miss Bennett….
    "The citizens have been tremendous in their outpouring of support for Ms. Bennett. A lot of them were taught by her," Chief Palmer said.


    ..."She gets out of breath really easily. She couldn't walk out of the bedroom to the living room without being out of breath," Bennett said.

    She also had a broken foot, and should have left her home in a boot cast. Police are trying to remain optimistic and hoping someone may have seen her, and just offered her a ride.

    "Based on the information we've been given, we've determined she probably could not have gone a great distance on her own power. It's a very good possibility someone did give her a ride trying to be a good Samaritan," Chief Palmer said.

    The latest update below. I just hate the thought of this woman being out in the elements - lost and not knowing who she is, where she is.

    I truly hope foul play is not involved.

    Authorities still searching for missing Waynesboro woman

    ...Waynesboro Police Chief Augustus Palmer III said Monday that his department, along with the Burke County Sheriff’s Office and numerous volunteers, searched from sunup to sundown over the weekend without finding 77-year-old Arletha Bennett, of Waynesboro.
    “No stone left unturned is our approach,” Palmer said. “We had another search effort begin around noon today, and that’s still ongoing.”
