Search Continues for Missing Florala Women

By  | 

Wiregrass authorities have tracked leads as far as Fort Walton Beach, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia looking for a missing person.

Sandra Coon's family in Florala is anxiously waiting to hear from their loved one.

Last Thursday night, the 36-year-old woman left her Florala home saying she was going to the store. However, she hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Police describe the disappearance as troubling and out of character for Mrs. Coon. She is five-foot-seven inches tall and weighs around 140 pounds with green eyes and dark brown hair.

Carolyn Coon, the victim’s mother-in-law, said the family wants to, "Find out if she's alright. Folks [are] helping us look for [her] here, riding the roads in search of her."

Jessica Coon is the missing woman's daughter. Jessica says her 16-month-old daughter, Caycee, continues to ask for her Nanna. "I want to know if she's okay,” she says.

Florala's population is around 2000. City Councilman Robert Williamson says crime is low, and when something like this happens it affects everyone. "This happens usually in cities', but not here. We're all affected by the disappearance," he says.

Authorities say they've tracked leads that have covered more than 500 miles without success.

Mrs. Coon was last seen inside hear car, which is a white Chevrolet Corsica with an Alabama tag number of 23C568R.
