IRON COUNTY, Utah, Oct. 29, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A Facebook post from Iron County Search and Rescue thanked everyone for “the huge outpouring of community support” Monday in the effort to find 71-year-old Carol Stratton, who has been missing since Saturday.

The public search effort will resume at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

“If members of the public would like to assist, please report to our command post on 4000 W., just west of the Lund highway/4000 W. intersection,” the Facebook post said.

Stratton, who lives in Cedar City, is about 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 115 pounds. She has blue eyes and gray hair.  She was last seen near 3700 West and 4000 North at 2 p.m. Saturday, an initial news release said.

Search teams have covered an area that includes State Route 130 to Three Peaks and from Midvalley Road to 300 North. Aircraft and K-9s also have joined in the effort to locate the missing woman.

Residents are asked to check around their homes and outbuildings, in case Stratton, who has dementia and is non-verbal, sought shelter from the cold weather.

Anyone who has seen Carol Stratton or who has any information regarding her possible whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 435-867-7550.
