The Houston County Sheriff’s Office is still searching for a missing 64-year-old white female.
Linda LaValley St. Pierre was last seen Thursday, June 6, at about 4 p.m. on County Road 55 in Cottonwood.
According to Houston County Sheriff Donald Valenza, deputies combed the area for multiple hours Thursday evening, and the search continued Friday, June 7.
“We don’t believe foul play is involved,” Valenza said. “However, Ms. (St.) Pierre does have health issues and we are asking the community to be on the lookout for anyone matching her description.”
The state issued an official Missing Senior Alert on Saturday.
St. Pierre is 5-foot, 2-inches tall weighing roughly 150 to 170 pounds. She has brown eyes and long brown hair, and was last seen wearing a short-sleeved shirt, red shorts, and sandals. She walks with a pronounced limp.
St. Pierre was last seen by her son, William Roberts, Valenza said.
Roberts told investigators he was outside with his mother when she walked toward the front of her residence. Roberts said he searched inside his mother’s residence and the yard trying to locate St. Pierre, but only found his mother’s cell phone, purse, and wallet in her bedroom, and her cigarettes on the front porch.
Roberts contacted law enforcement at 6:15 p.m. and a search began. Deputies canvassed the area and deployed a tracking K9 in effort of locating St. Pierre. The K9 was unable to pick up any scent trail. Multiple investigation units and command staff also assisted in locating St. Pierre, including a drone.
“At this time there has been no sight of Ms. St. Pierre,” Valenza said. “All area hospitals have been contacted and we are asking the community to be on the lookout for St. Pierre. She is considered to be an endangered elderly person. St. Pierre is listed on the missing person and Silver Alert has been issued due to her status and the circumstances under which she went missing.”
St. Pierre suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar mood disorder.
Anyone with any information regarding St Pierre’s whereabouts is asked to call the Houston County Sheriff’s Office at 334-677-4808.
