Search Continues for Missing Bonham Woman

Posted:

A statewide Silver Alert has been issued to help find a missing 71 year old Bonham woman. Deeda Payton has more on the search to find Katie Joe Brewer.

Brewer disappeared Saturday morning. She was last seen near her home in Bonham wearing blue pants and a white and blue striped shirt. She does suffer from Alzheimer's.

Monday is the third day volunteers have searched for the woman. Over the past three days, over 300 people have come out to add to the search effort.

The Bonham Police Department leads the search that has been made difficult by the rain and mist. Detective Terry Bee says they have now searched the eastside of Bonham, north of Ninth Street and South of 273, about five times with no luck. However, they did find a pair of shoes, they say, could belong to brewer in that area. "I've not been through a situation like this before, but as far as hope, we always hold out hope that she's holed up someplace out of the weather and just hasn't made contact with anybody or nobody has made contact with her."

Tuesday authorities hope to take the search for Katie Joe Brewer to the skies. Weather permitting, they will conduct a helicopter search. If you have any information contact Bonham Police at 903-583-2141.
