The Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Department says a woman who has a history of mental illness is missing, and she may have possibly been trying to walk or hitchhike to San Augustine where other family members live.
A press release on the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page said that 67-year-old Linda Christine Wheeler was last seen walking away from her home early Sunday morning about 10 miles north of Nacogdoches, and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Nacogdoches County investigators say Wheeler is a white female with black hair and brown eyes. She stands 5’03” and weighs about 140 pounds. She was last seen wearing a navy blue shirt, blue jeans, and carrying a black purse. Deputies noted that she was wearing socks, but no shoes.
