Carol Evans, 75, of Lower Lovelace Road in West Point, reportedly left her home around 2 p.m. on Friday, November 10, when her hus- band went outside to mow the grass. When her husband came back into the home, she was no longer there. Sgt. Stewart Smith of the Troup County Sheriff's Department said Evans suffers from an "altered mental state." "We believe she left the house on foot and got disoriented and was not able to make it back to the house," Smith said. Deputies and Police have been conduct- ing ground searches of the area since Friday evening. At first, K-9 units were employed in the search effort, along with drones from local law enforcement agencies and a Georgia State Patrol helicopter. That ground search continued through last weekend. Earlier this week, Smith said, Deputies scaled back the ground search to CAROL EVANS well as can be expected." Nearby cities have also been notified, in the event Evans tried to catch a ride from a passing motorist.
