EXETER, R.I. (AP) - The family of a missing Coventry woman who didn’t return home from a walk in a wilderness area with her dogs is continuing to look for her despite authorities suspending the official search.

Patti Pendleton’s son Mike posted on Facebook that volunteers were gathering Sunday at the Arcadia Management Area Check Station in Exeter to continue searching for his 59-year-old mother.

Pendleton’s prescription glasses were found Thursday during a search of the 16,000-acre management area. Police think she was hiking near state Route 165 on Monday. Her family reported her missing Tuesday when she didn’t show up for work.

State Police, the Department of Environmental Management and Coventry Police suspended their search Friday evening after scouring over 4,200 acres on the ground and 10 square miles from the air.
