Betty Kelsey, 61, was last seen driving a 2002 red Chevrolet Avalanche pickup truck, according to Trigg County Sheriff Randy Clark.
Her husband Larry Kelsey reported on Wednesday, Sept. 2, at about 8 p.m. that he couldn’t locate her, and a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) was put out nationwide, Clark said, adding that she was placed on the NCIC around the state and country with her description the next night.
“We are very concerned about her well-being,” Clark said.
Larry Kelsey said she is about five and a half feet tall and about 185 pounds, and added that she had been talking about driving to Land Between the Lake. He also she had been talking about seeing a friend in Michigan, but went on to say that her friend hasn’t seen her, either.
Kelsey had been depressed and was taking several medications but decided to quit some of them cold turkey, particularly Prozac, Larry Kelsey said.
The sheriff said that Kelsey left with only $80 in cash, and although she has diabetes, she didn’t take any of her medication with her. He added that as of Thursday morning, no one had yet heard from her.
Clark said that both the U.S. Forest Service and the Kentucky State Police have chased down leads, but none of them have lead to Kelsey. “Hopefully we can turn something up,” the sheriff said.
Clark said anyone with information that may help find Kelsey is asked to call the Trigg County Sheriff’s Department at 522-6014.
