By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The search for Jonette Hamilton Woods continues. The 72-year-old, who has Alzheimer's, went missing Monday September 7th from Dimmitt.  Friends gathered in Dimmitt Friday to form a search crew that they informally refer to as a posse. A friend of Jo Hamilton Woods, Peggy Broadstreet , told KWES-TV in Midland, "She's just very well thought of.  She used to work for the city of Dimmitt. Everyone knows Jo. We are all very concerned."

About two dozen people joined with law enforcement Friday to search both Dimmitt and Castro County.   Jonette or "Jo" as she's better known was last seen at the Allsup's convenience store. Officials think she had a full tank of gas when she left.

She is 5'6" inches, 137-pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.  She also has trouble breathing, and does not have her oxygen with her. She may be driving a white '96 Mercury Cougar with Texas plates 641-CYS.  If you have any information on her whereabouts you're asked to call the Castro County Sheriff at 806-647-3311.
