Police search for missing woman

PALM VALLEY — Police are asking for help in finding a 66-year-old Palm Valley woman reported missing over the weekend.

Police are not sure when Alice Johnson Myers went missing from her townhouse apartment here.

“The neighbors were out there with her Thursday night by the swimming pool and then Friday morning, she’s gone,” Police Chief Alvaro Garcia said yesterday.

The neighbors did not see Myers’ car in her carport Friday or Saturday. She was reported missing Saturday after her daughter in Houston was unable to reach her.

Garcia said Myers is on medication and police will be checking with her doctor to find out her diagnosis.

“That will determine whether or not we issue a Silver Alert,” the police chief said.

A Silver Alert is for missing persons 65 years old and older who have mental conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, he said.

As of now, police do not suspect foul play.

“There is no sign of forced entry to her house. Everything is in order in her house. If something out of the ordinary would have happened, the neighbors would have seen something,” Garcia said.

“It looks like she left and nobody knows where she went. We have no idea where she might have gone.”

He said Myers lives alone in the townhouse.

Myers does have a cell phone with her. But calls are going straight to voice mail, Garcia said.

Investigators will be checking bank records today.

Myers is described as 5 feet, 2 inches tall, 135 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.

She may be driving a 2015 four-door Chevrolet Cruze with temporary paper license plates 29R6343.

Myers just bought the car on Thursday, which is why it has paper plates, Garcia said.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call the Palm Valley Police Department at 956-873-1500 or the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office at 956-554-6700.
