Authorities and the family still have yet to discover any clues regarding the whereabouts of 83-year-old Emma Carroll.
Carroll, 83, apparently walked away from home in the Groveland area of Bryan County between and 6-8 p.m. on July 18. She suffers from dementia, her family said.
"We’re still putting out flyers," daughter Alethia Carroll said. "We’re going to extend it even further and post them in Reidsville, Lowndes and Hinesville. We’re also going to cover all the homeless shelters and personal care facilities. We’re still hopeful."
Alethia Carroll said the family is contemplating the theory that her mother made it to Hwy. 280 and rode to another area. The family has also been following several leads that have come in, but thus far to no avail.
Eighteen agencies participated in the search for Emma Carroll for eight days after here initial disappearance, but no clues were found as to her whereabouts. In all, hundreds of volunteers spent more than 3,500 man hours looking for Carroll. This included an intensive search of the area woods. However, not one clue was discovered.
Carroll was last seen in a blue dress with a large white collar and a white flower pattern on it. She is 5 feet 3 inches tall and 170 pounds.
Bryan County Emergency Management Director Jim Anderson confirmed that there have been no recent discoveries in the case but encourages anyone with any information to contact him at 858-2799.
