On Thursday, Sept. 6, Jonesboro police released new photos at the request of Prescott’s family. They said her appearance has changed due to recent health issues and these new photos more accurately depict what their loved one looks like now.

“She was last seen wearing a black Winnie The Pooh pajama top with pink and purple Eeyore’s on it and may be wearing a fleece purple robe. She does not have her wallet, purse or cell phone with her,” the post said.

She was last seen at her home in Jonesboro’s Griffin Park neighborhood. Prescott left her cell phone and purse in her home, and her dog roaming the house.

Family members said that’s out of character for Prescott.

“Very unlike her to leave her house unlocked and with all her belongings behind,” said her nephew, Chris Crader.

Search teams were out looking for Prescott all day Sunday.

Dogs were brought out to her house and to scavenge the neighborhood, and the family said law enforcement has determined she didn’t leave the house on foot.

“Just praying that police can pull stuff off her DVR. Praying it was recording and that will give us some more leads.” Chris said.

They say she is on prescription medications and was recently in the hospital.

Family members said her red blood count was low and she could have been disoriented when she went missing - and fear she may be in danger.

“I’m fearful that something has happened, and like I said its hard. You feel helpless, we don’t know what to do, where to start," said Lisa Crader, Prescott’s niece.

Right now the family says they have no leads, and they’re turning to the public for help.

“Right now we’re at a loss. We don’t know what to do, where to look, who to contact. We’ve contacted everybody that we know that she knows." Lisa said.

The family said they have no leads right now, and are looking to the public for help.

“If anybody knows anything, has seen anything, thinks they might know something just to contact the Jonesboro Police Department" Lisa added.

Officials are also urging anyone who may have seen her to call the Jonesboro Police Department immediately.

Region 8 News is working to learn more about this case and hope to provide more details soon.
