WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) - Starr Mulder, 53, has been missing for nearly four weeks.

Friends and family are desperate for answers while investigators try to find them.

"I've got probably six or seven of the investigators, all of them have a hand in trying to see what they can do, trying to piece that back together for us," said Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin.

"I'm totally freaking out. I'm worried," said Sharon Brooks, a friend of Mulder's. "I'm worried something's happened to her because she was so weak."

Mulder was weak from recent medical issues. She was supposed to get a ride from someone to UAB but that never happened, and Mulder hasn't been seen since.

Sheriff Franklin says at the time of her disappearance, Mulder lived with her ex-husband at a Wetumpka home.

We spoke to several of Starr Mulder's neighbors, none of them wanted to go on camera but they all said the same thing; the couple was quiet, even reclusive. One man even admitted he didn't know the missing woman reports were about the same woman who lived right across the street.

Despite the non-traditional living situation, and Mulder's lengthy disappearance, the Sheriff says there's no sign of foul play.

"Nothing has come to us that would tend to make us believe or confirm the fact that there's foul play involved. Right now we don't have any reason to put any of the onus on him," Franklin said.

Mulder's friends and family are pleading for any updates on her whereabouts and well-being.

"I just want answers," Brooks said. "You know, if she needs us, please call. Call me. If you're seeing this right now Starr, Call me. Call me and I will come and get you."
