AUBURN — Police and family are looking for 50-year-old Elizabeth “Betty” Jenkins Burnam, who has been missing since Sunday.
Burnam has Bipolar Disorder and without medication she could seem confused, disoriented, agitated or have slurred speech. She was last seen by her daughter Saturday night, but no one has heard from her since.
“She called her daughter every day without fail,” Burnam’s sister, Jayne Madigan, said.
Police have issued a Mattie’s Call for the Auburn woman, who was last seen in Florida.
According to Madigan, Burnam was pulled over in Key West, Fla. by a police officer Monday. She reportedly told the officer she was traveling to Miami to see family.
“The officer said she was lucid, but definitely off,” Madigan said. “We have family in Miami, but no one has heard from her. My biggest fear is that she’s out there with no medication and she may not even know who she is and if she leaves her car somewhere, that she won’t be able to identify herself.”
Burnam is the owner of The Roofer Direct in Monroe, Ga. and doesn’t like to travel far from her house, according to Madigan.
“She doesn’t even like to drive on (Interstate) 85,” she said.
Burnam was last seen driving her 2012 burgundy Nissan Murano with the Georgia tag PDQ8800. She is 5 feet, 9 inches tall, approximately 180 pounds with a medium build. She is a Caucasian with brown eyes and light brown highlighted hair.
