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?

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

Quote:
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:

Quote:
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.

Quote:
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.”

She is still missing. Where are you, Arletha?

It is snowing in Waynesboro tonight, with accumulation estimated to be 4" or so. This is considered a snow storm down there - and I was thinking of Arletha.

If she really is 'out there', then I don't believe she could've survived the elements this long, unfortunately.

However, I'm beginning to think something more sinister happened, such as foul play right from the beginning. Reports are that she couldn't walk from one room to the next without getting out of breath. Add in a broken foot with a medical boot. I doubt she could've made it to the end of the driveway on foot.

So worried about Arletha. People don't just 'go missing' in my little hometown.

This makes no sense.

- There's no way she made it that far, when she could hardly walk from room to room.
- That road gets quite a bit of traffic, so someone would've noticed her hobbling down the road. Even if she did make it outside, it would've taken her quite some - she wasn't able to move fast.
- How did she go undetected that long in a laundry room? That is not a particularly nice part of town - those aren't folks who take their clothes elsewhere to wash.

I really wish their had been an autopsy.

At least the local authorities are still investigating, although I don't know what they are really finding - if her cause of death has already been determined to be senility.

I just don't buy it.

Waynesboro chief: Woman's death still under investigation

The Waynesboro, Ga., Police Department is continuing its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the discovery of a 77-year-old woman who was found dead almost a month after she was reported missing, Chief Augustus Palmer III said Wednesday.

Palmer said the department will continue to work through the information it has gathered through interviews, and will brief the family and the public of its findings at the conclusion of the investigation.
