Missing Coosa County woman sought by authorities

COOSA COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - Coosa County authorities are asking for the public's help finding a missing woman who hasn't been seen since July 5.

The Coosa County Sheriff's Office says deputies responded to the home of Donna Lynn Brown, 57, on Browns Loop Road off County Road 118 in the Salem Community on reports of a missing person on reports that she was missing.

Brown left her home on foot around 1 a.m. Thursday and had not returned by 7 a.m. The sheriff's office says Brown was with her sister-in-law, Nancy Davis, who woke up around 1 a.m. and realized Brown was gone.

Brown's husband, Herbert Earle Brown, advised authorities that she had walked home from Davis' house around 12:30 a.m. He also told authorities she was upset and that he calmed her down and talked her into going to sleep. When Mr. Brown woke up, he said his wife was gone.

Searches of houses and outside buildings were conducted by deputies without luck. Other law enforcement agencies pitched in on the search, including the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency which provided its helicopter, but the search was called off after several hours.

Officials say Brown is about 5-foot-3 inches tall, weighs 150 lbs, and has gray hair and brown eyes. It is reported that she was last seen wearing a pink shirt, black pants, and blue and white tennis shoes.

Anyone that has any information has been asked to contact the Coosa County Sheriff's Office at 256-377-2211, or call 911.
