EXETER, R.I. (AP) - Authorities are suspending a search for a Coventry woman who never returned home from a walk in a wilderness area with her two dogs.

Patti Pendleton’s prescription glasses were found on Thursday during a search of the 16,000-acre Arcadia Management Area in Exeter.

Police think the 59-year-old woman was hiking near state Route 165 on Monday. Her family reported her missing Tuesday when she didn’t show up for work. Her car was found that day.

Rhode Island State Police Corporal Scott Carlsten called the probability of Pendleton’s survival “quite dim.”

The Providence Journal reported that Carlsten said members of Pendleton’s family are planning to continue to search for her on their own.
