EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - A local family is pleading for your help in finding a missing loved one.

69-year-old Annette Newsom, who has severe Alzheimer's, was last seen July 8th. Family members say she somehow got her hands on a set of car keys and drove off from Hillcreek Park at Lake Tyler. Police, family, and friends have been searching but have not found one clue to go on.

"I would ask that people who have lake property to check their property and people that have hayfields maybe because she used to do hayfield work with Pawpaw," said family member Brandy Roper. "Maybe she's sitting in their barn and they don't realize it."

Anne was last seen driving a maroon Ford F-150 with a camper on top. She was wearing a floral purple shirt and tan pants.

If you have any information, please contact Tyler police and we will have a complete report and interview with family tonight on KLTV at six.
