Police in Georgia are searching for a Morrow County native who was a long-time missionary in Hong Kong.
According to reports, Janet Sue Miller, 78, who grew up five miles south of Galion, went missing on Christmas Eve.
Family members said Miller has been retired for over twelve years and suffers from dementia.
Her brother, Bill, who still lives on the family farm in Morrow County, said he last spoke with her earlier this year.
“We’re concerned as a family,” he said.
According to reports, police responded to Miller’s apartment complex for a welfare check Sunday afternoon and was told she had not been seen since Christmas Eve at about 7 p.m.
Galion resident Laura Hoffman-Reed, who was a neighbor of Miller’s family growing up, said she heard police believe she was coming or going from a Christmas Eve service near the Brookhaven, Ga., apartment complex where she lives.
“I hope they find her,” Hoffman-Reed said. “She is soft-spoken with a beautiful personality. She has a love for the people of Hong Kong.”
Police in Georgia have been using a helicopter and the city’s K-9 unit in hopes of finding her.
According to reports, Miller was last seen wearing glasses, an unknown color long dress, and black shoes. She is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighing 90 pounds with long, gray hair and blue eyes.
Police are saying anyone with information about her location should call the Brookhaven Police Department at 404-637-0600.
