Numerous agencies, volunteers continue search

News Staff Report

Authorities have still not found any sign of a Pollard woman who has been missing from her home since noon on Saturday, November 24.
A family member of 74-year-old Eva McBride, a white female who was last seen by a family member at about 6:30 p.m. on Friday, November 23, reported that the search for the missing woman has been ongoing, with several volunteers and numerous public safety agencies involved.
According to the family member, Escambia County Sheriff’s Office personnel were assisted by 50 or more volunteers as they searched the areas around the woman’s home until about 10 p.m. Saturday night.
The search has also included resources from Klaaskids National Search Center for Missing Children in Pensacola, tracking dogs from the Alabama Department of Corrections and Flomaton Fire and Rescue.
Tracking dogs from Klasskids, Monroe County Fire and Rescue personnel, Alabama State Troopers and Daphne Search and Rescue and several civilian volunteers resumed the search on Sunday, combing the nearby woods for any signs of McBride, who — according to the missing person flyer issued by authorities — “might be suffering from a condition that impairs her judgment.”
An Alabama Law Enforcement Agency helicopter crew also searched the wooded areas, including hunting trails, power lines and gas lines, but also came up empty.
Anyone who has seen Ms. McBride or who might have information that would help in locating her is urged to call either the county sheriff’s office at 251-809-0741, 911 or the Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-228-7688.
