By  | 

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.
