Leon County authorities are searching for an elderly woman missing since Wednesday evening.

Joy Thomas (pictured below) lives with her son in Jewett. He last saw the 71-year-old around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday night, and when he returned home at 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning, she was gone.

Thomas has a history of heart problems and cancer and is wearing a medical alert button. She also has a cell phone, but it is apparently turned off.

Thomas weighs about 100 pounds and stands between 5'6" and 5'7".

Police have no reason to believe foul play is involved.

If you have any information, you can call the Leon County Sheriff's Office at 903-536-2749.
