Police still searching for missing Monroe County woman

Posted

On Dec. 17, 2021, around 4:20 p.m.,  Betty Hayes was reported missing.  

Betty Hayes is described as an 88-year-old white female with blonde/gray hair, blue eyes, approximately 5’2” tall, weighing 86 pounds.  She was last seen wearing a dark-colored stocking hat and a dark coat with purple sweat pants, although it is possible her clothing was changed prior to her being reported missing.  

The last known contact with Ms. Hayes was by a family member on the evening of Dec. 16.  She was believed to have been at her home at that time.  A search for Ms. Hayes near her home was conducted on Friday night and expanded to a large-scale air and ground search throughout the day on Dec. 18.  The search was conducted by law enforcement, firefighters, volunteers, and a Missouri State Highway Patrol aircraft.  Searches of the area around her residence by family, neighbors, friends, and law enforcement have continued since that time.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office initiated a silver advisory on Dec. 17. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control, is actively investigating the disappearance of Hayes.  

“It’s important that we consider all possibilities and follow-up on all possible leads," said Sheriff Colston. “We are asking for anyone who may have had contact with Ms. Hayes leading up to the time she was reported missing to contact us with those details.  We are also asking that if anyone has any information about Ms. Betty Hayes, or her possible whereabouts, to contact the Sheriff’s Office.”

If you have any information about Betty Hayes please contact the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office at 660-327-4060.
