    This youtube from the youtube station of WRCB TV has a little more information. She was driving in formation with other family members when she suddenly made an unexpected turn and they lost sight of her vehicle.

    "New details": The vehicle is registered in Tennessee and the license plate is 158-JSP. The 1999 GMC Sierra is an SLT model with an extended cab. It has a dent in the right front fender with a matching grey bed cover. It has running boards, chrome wheels, no spare tire, and a small dent in the back of the cab next to the third brake light.

    oh no, thanks for that local insight @TaylorJ4 ... driving with her family and turned off somewhere. They must have turned around to look when they realized - how far could she have gone... very scary...

    That's so sad. Taking away a family members driving privilege is terribly hard. My Dad was mad when I took his keys away (arranging for a nurse's aide who could help him in the home and drive him anywhere) that he replaced me in his Will with a cousin. I don't care, with his cognitive abilities diminishing he was a danger to not just himself but the public. I know people with a parent with dementia that say "oh, last time I visited they were driving just fine", not realizing that the individual’s driving skills may decrease significantly in a short period of time. My Dad went from "safe" to getting his SUV lodged sideways in his single car garage within a matter of weeks.

    I was so hopeful that she was going to be found safe. RIP Geneva. I'm so glad your family was able to find you.
