    Bobbie, thank you for the update.

    The second article says her Expedition was found stuck in the mud at a well location. Her keys and purse were gone from the car.

    What has the weather there been like (since you are local) since she has been missing? TIA.

    I looked up a google map of County Road 173 In Panola County, that's pretty isolated. I really don't see very many homes near that road. The route I pulled up has her crossing over Lake Murvual. She could have taken another route though.

    I reread the article and it states she lives in the Lake Murvual area. I don't understand why she would have pulled onto County Road 173 unless she has overshot a turn and wanted to turn around. She's out there somewhere.

    I'd like to see the article that outlines the searches already done for her.

    I hope she is found soon.

    Kat yes her car was stuck in the mud. I've heard from people that I work with that live out at the lake that her hand prints were all down the side of the car like she was trying to feel her way out. They brought the dogs in to track her scent and it just dissapears like possibly getting in a car with someone. She always wore alot of flashy jewelry so that could be easily seen by someone that could have picked her up and would want to rob her or something.
    The weather that weekend that she disappeared was rainy. We had storms that friday night and saturday that weekend. Otherwise this week it's been hot hot hot... We did have a storm blow in last night but not much rain with it just alot of thundering and booming and high winds.
    The people that said she stopped to ask for directions are saying that they could tell she was disorientated and that they had to turn her car around for her to head her in the right direction to her home at the lake. When she left she took a different turn than what they told her. I couldn't sleep at night knowing that I could've have done something right then especially knowing that she was not in the right state of mind at that moment.
    The oil locations they are every where here. And most are very muddy especially with all the rain that we had the week of her disappearing. And the woods alot of woods. We are in the part of texas they call the piney woods. They are everywhere.
    I will have to see on more articles. There really hasn't been a whole lot. I know that they had a few searchers out there but most of them have been the volunteer fire depts all in this area, they did use search dogs and cadaver dogs. They had helicopters in here searching and horses and 4 wheelers. They state they believe she is no longer in the area.

    It was her husband that is in the hospital. He has alzheimers.

    I know about her friends letting her leave.. Man I could not live with myself if I did that. No doubt in my mind stranger or not someone was like that when they showed up at my house asking for directions I would've made them stay there, take their keys from them and call the police.

    In looking for info about Doris, there was an article posted on July 31 reporting that she had the beginning symptoms of alzheimers too.

    http://www.news-journal.com/news/content/news/stories/2009/07/31/07312009_Missing_Woman_.html

    That might explain the disorientation? I hope she is found soon.

    Hi BobbieBu,

    No, I don't live in that area. I posted the contact number from a Web site that you or someone else posted. I did that because a lot of folks don't read links.

    I wonder if she had a cellphone with her?
    Keep us posted. I'm hoping for some good news.

    Bumping for Doris! Nothing has been reported on her lately. The search is over and she's no where to be found. I am now seeing signs on the side of the roads with her name and picture on them and the flyers in the store windows. But that's it on her disappearance.
