Crews continue search for missing Denver City woman

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - West Texas residents headed to Hobbs, New Mexico Wednesday to help search for 64-year-old Judy McCullough. She disappeared about two weeks ago when driving from Hobbs to Denver City.

About 75 volunteers with hundreds of flyers set out Wednesday with one question, "Have you seen this woman?"

"One minute I think, you know what, we're going to find her, and the next minute I think we may never find her," said McCullough's daughter, Keri Fenton. 

Family members organized a search for McCullough after two aerial searches in West Texas left them with no new leads.  They decided to start on the ground where she started, in Hobbs. "We gave copies of the map with their section marked on it. When they return they give us their copy back and we mark it off on a master so we know which areas have been searched," said Fenton. 

Search crews took out 4-wheelers and ATVs to look for McCullough or her car in fields or other areas the aerial search may have missed off the road. Among the volunteers, McCullough's son John searches desperately. He hopes he'll find someone who's seen his mom or her car, a cream 2005 Chrysler 300 with Texas license plates Z61-JZD.

"Today (Wednesday), just as people were out driving, there's been a couple of things that have come in," said Fenton. However, none of those tips make sense in John McCullough's mind, but he says nothing will stop his search, "No giving up. I mean, it's not in our vocabulary right now."

Family members say McCullough is not diagnosed with Alzheimer's, but may have some symptoms. If they have not found her by the end of the week, the family hopes to plan another search from Seminole on Saturday.
