Reward offered in search for missing Wilmington woman

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) — Crime Stoppers and the Wilmington Police Department are offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the whereabouts of Alma Lawson and the circumstances of her disappearance.

Alma Lawson, age 83, was last seen on Stanley Street in the Love Grove area of Wilmington at about 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 4. She told a friend that she was headed home — just two blocks away — and she has not been seen since.

According to family members, Ms. Lawson is believed to be experiencing the early signs of dementia. Due to her age and physical limitations, she has been considered to be endangered since the day she disappeared.

The Wilmington Police Department initiated an exhaustive search of the entire area, including the nearby creek and wooded areas. WPD’s K-9 and mounted units participated, as did the SABLE helicopter. Other organizations came in to assist, including the Wilmington and New Hanover County Fire Departments, New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, Brunswick Search and Rescue and Roxye Ann Marshall, urban search and rescue K-9 handler.

To date, there has been no sign of Alma Lawson.

She is described as a black female, approximately 5’5″ tall, weighing 102 pounds. When last seen, she was wearing a lavender shirt, black pants and a black jacket. A photo is attached.

Anyone who may have seen Alma Lawson or who knows where she is should call the Wilmington Police Department at 910-343-3620, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 531-9845. Information also may be submitted anonymously through Text-A-Tip. Enter Tip708 and the message; send to CRIMES (274637).
