    I am unable to find any new information today. Also not finding a FB profile. I wish there were more details...who reported her missing? Does she have a vehicle? Is it missing? Cell phone? Live alone or with family? Any illnesses? Medications? Hoping she turns up somewhere soon...safe and sound.

    Found a new article saying she was NOT found in the river...

    Police had no information or no reason to believe Lila Dickerson, 57, might be in the river, but were doing their due diligence to make sure she was not, Deputy Chief Holda said Friday evening. The dive team did not locate what they were sent to find, said Jackson County Sheriff's Deputy Ben Roe of the marine division, which works in conjunction with the dive team. He declined to release the subject of the search, but Holda said it was Dickerson.

    Dickerson was last seen about 7 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 13, in the 600 block of Homewild Avenue, Jackson police earlier reported.

    Police do not suspect foul play, Holda said. Dickerson has some medical issues and might have wandered away and become confused, he said. Neither her husband nor her son know where she is.

    "We are trying to do whatever we can to cover all our bases and make sure we try and locate her," Holda said.

    The search for her continues, he said.

    Here is the whole article in quotes below. Nothing really new in the article.

    The one lone comment on the article says the poster would guess she is at a neighbors. That comment makes me say "What???" At the neighbors? For six days? Doing what? Um, no, I'm not thinking so...

    Unable to find anything new today. Very little media coverage locally. I live about 45 minutes from Jackson. I'm finding this case very frustrating. Very little info out there. If efforts are being expended to find her they are being very quiet about it.

    Still missing....new article.

    http://wlns.com/2015/08/17/jackson-p...disappearance/

    JACKSON, MI (WLNS) – The search is still on for a 57-year-old Jackson woman who police say walked away from her home six days ago.

    After an extensive search by police few answers remain as to where she might be.

    Police from around the area have searched by air, water and land to find Lila Dickerson, who has been missing for nearly a week.

    And they have very little to show for it.

    “We have talked to everybody and have not located any leads as to where she might be,” said Dep. Chief John Holda, Jackson Police Department.

    Police say Dickerson was last seen right here on the 600 block of Homewild Avenue in Jackson, and they say they do have concerns because she may have medical problems.

    On Friday the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department searched roughly a mile of the Grand River for anything that might tell them where Dickerson could be.

    “Upon searching a particular area we just weren’t able to locate the evidence we were looking for,” said Ben Roe, Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.Michigan State Police took to the skies and searched the area by helicopter while Jackson City Police knocked on doors and exhausted all leads.

    Even looking through security footage at the Jackson Crossing Mall where a tipster reported seeing her.

    Still, nothing.

    “Basically it’s to the point where we’re looking for information from the public just that someone may have seen her, or known her, recognized her picture, that may help us find her whereabouts,” said Dep. Chief John Holda, Jackson Police Department.

    If you have any information on where Lila Dickerson might be you are asked to contact the Jackson Police Department at 517-788-4100.

    I've been away...came back to find that a FB page is set up...

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/Findliladickerson/

    Paraphrasing from the FB page: Lila suffers from mental health issues and has been without her medication for over two weeks. She left her home with some medications and roughly $60. She is not comfortable in public and will not likely speak to anyone. Search and flyer efforts include homeless shelters, bus lines, cab companies,volunteer aid agencies.

    I can only imagine how scary life on the streets can be for someone with mental illness issues. I hope she is found soon.

    Police find human remains, believed to be missing Jackson woman

    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."
