Sheriff's office 'exhausted' resources in search for missing 75-year-old woman

- The Troup County Sheriff's Office said that they have exhausted all of their resources searching for a 75-year-old woman who went missing over a week ago.

Carol Evans was last seen at her home on Lower Lovelace Road in West Point, Ga. Officials think it may be possible Carol left walking from her home and never returned.

Sheriff James Woodruff said that since she was declared missing the entire criminal investigative staff, along with other personnel have worked around the clock searching.

"Since this case was opened the Troup County Sheriff’s Office has utilized helicopter and drone assets equipped with Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR), over half a dozen K-9 search teams, and dozens of first responders and volunteers searching the area surrounding the property and the adjoining roads," he said in a statement.

Unfortunately, Woodruff said that the search has turned up empty, and they've looked in all the reasonable locations where Carol may have gone.

"We continue to have hope that Mrs. Carol Evans will be found soon and we pray that the family will have strength through this ordeal," he said.

Carol is about 5-feet-2-inches tall and weighs around 180 pounds. Officers do not know what she was wearing the day she went missing other than her glasses and either possibly tennis shoes or slip-on shoes.

A large cash reward is now being offered for any information that leads to Carol's location. 

If you have any information on her location, please contact the Sheriff's Office at (706) 883-1616 or Troup County Crime Stoppers at (706) 812-1000.
