BAY, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in northeast Arkansas are searching for a 90-year-old woman who they say was forcibly taken from her home.

The Bay Police Department on Saturday activated a Silver Alert for Lavinda Counce, who was last seen Friday afternoon. Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd told reporters Tuesday there is evidence that shows she was abducted from her Bay home.

Boyd declined to say why authorities believe she was abducted and says an investigation is ongoing.

Officers located Counce’s car at a Jonesboro hospital late last week. They say security footage shows a man in dark clothing getting out of her car.

Boyd told the Jonesboro Sun that a silver alert issued Saturday inaccurately reported that Counce has dementia.
