Missing Lawrence woman located
ROME TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Lawrence County authorities now believe a missing 55-year-old Rome Township woman left the area Tuesday of her own free will, according to Sheriff Jeff Lawless.
The sheriff's office, with the assistance of West Virginia authorities, have discovered video of Kimberly Little's vehicle traveling through the state of West Virginia.
At the request of the family, the location of the vehicle wasn't identified, but it wasn't in the Tri-State area, Lawless said. The video shows the woman is traveling alone and there are no signs that she's in any danger, according to a news release.
"We still want to make sure she is okay," Lawless said in the release. "She has a lot of people concerned about her and we hope she reaches out to them soon."
Her husband, Mark Little, reported her missing Tuesday morning when she didn't return from a trip to the bank and the post office in Guyandotte. Mark Little said his wife left work at Curry and Johnson Heating and Cooling in Rome Township, about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
She was driving a white, 2006 Toyota Sequoia with Ohio registration EBB 9383. The sheriff's office will cease its intense investigation, but will keep her vehicle entered into the NCIC computer so that if another agency has contact with her, they can check her well-being, according to Lawless.
