    MA - Dorothy Brownsberger, 48, Reading, 20 Sept 2015

    Dorothy Brownsberger

    Police search for popular athlete missing from Reading
    "READING, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- State and Reading Police are searching for a woman missing since Sunday.

    Dorothy Brownsberger, 48, of Reading, has not been seen since 9 a.m. Sunday. She may be traveling in her car, a 2007 yellow Hummer with the Mass. registration plate 785JP1.

    Brownsberger, a well-known athlete, is described as a white woman with brown hair who stands at about 5-feet and 4-inches tall. She weighs about 105 pounds and is well known for being athletic despite physical challenges. She had a double lung transplant about 20 years ago due to cystic fibrosis, but still competes in road races and more.

    Her husband told FOX25 that he hasn't seen his wife since she went to the store Sunday for milk and left her phone and medication behind."

    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."

    Hopefully a yellow hummer would be easy to spot in the search for her. Hope she is found safe.

    On Facebook Monday night, her husband posted the following message:

    "My wife Dottie Lessard Brownsberger went to get milk for breakfast around 9-915am Sunday September 20th, and said she'd be right back for 9:30 church and never returned. She left her phone at home and has not accessed any bank accounts in the past 35 hours. She was driving her 07, Yellow Hummer H3. Please send prayers and report any yellow H3 hummer to the reading or local police to where you see it. If there is anyone who sees her, has heard from her or knows her location please contact the Reading PD. I can't begin to express how shocked we are and we are praying for her to be found and safely returned. Please share."

    "We're hoping for the best, and that's all we can do right now," he said.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    Brownsberger, also known as Dottie.

    Brownsberger has her own business called “Live Life Fully,” which teaches young women to overcome obstacles.

    Does anyone know who reported Dottie missing and when? Was it was her husband or her sister who contacted police.

    I wonder why she left her phone home (I never leave home without it, even if it's just up to the corner to get milk) and it seems odd to run out at 9 or 9:15 to get milk to be home in time for church at 9:30? Was getting milk THAT important, would anyone even have time to use the milk for breakfast AND make it to church by 9:30? Odd, sorry.

    Bohi, don't know who reported her missing. Not much information released yet.

    Thanks, JerseyGirl. That is a pretty tight time to go to the store and back, and eat breakfast in time to leave for church at 9:30. She has a young son though, according to her sister's video, so maybe the milk was for him and he wasn't going to church.

    There seems to a lot of activity on the myfoxboston comments section, possible sightings around Haverhill, Massachusetts last night that readers were calling in to police and checking out themselves. It's that's great people are taking it seriously.

    I actually live in Reading. There are state police helicopters flying low all over town, especially near wooded areas and bodies of water. No updates locally. They were very new to town. Such a scary situation. I hope they fine her soon, and that she is safe.

    According to others in town, though Dottie just moved here, her ex is known- and liked- by others here in Reading. Perhaps she moved to town for custodial reasons- to be closer to her child's school here in town?
