Karen Johnson Swift was last seen at her home on Willie Johnson Road on Sunday, Oct. 30, at approximately 1:30 a.m.
Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box stated Swift's white 2004 Nissan Murano was recovered on Millsfield Highway near the intersection of Harness Road. The vehicle reportedly had a flat tire when it was found and was pointed north, just a short distance from her house.
Swift is described as:
Height: 5' 5"
Weight 138 lbs.
Box said Swift had arrived home late Saturday evening/early Sunday morning and dropped her children off at her house on Willie Johnson Road. He stated Swift's husband said he spoke to her in the stairwell and then went to bed and that was the last time she was seen.
On Sunday, Box said Swift's friends reported her missing and her car was found on Millsfield Highway.
Box, along with other officers have been searching the area for Swift and a K-9 team from Fort Pillow State Prison searched the Millsfield area on Monday afternoon.
Dickie Vanstory and James Dickens with the Tennessee Department of Corrections in Lauderdale County brought a bloodhound and searched the area around Swift's residence and where her car was found.
"We did a circle of the perimeter," said Vanstory who has been with the TDOC since 1980.
Box said the dog didn't hit on anything that could help them at the moment and his department is looking at other pieces of information in the investigation.
"This is still a missing person investigation and we are still talking to people and looking at cell phone records," said Box.
Swift's car was impounded and will be processed for clues as to what happened to Swift.
"We are going to have it processed very thoroughly and see if it produces any evidence that tells us what happened here," said Box.
He noted that none of the Swift's family members or friends have heard from her.
Box is asking anyone who has had contact with Swift, recalls seeing anyone near her vehicle since her disappearance, or has information regarding her whereabouts to contact the Dyer County Sheriff's Office at 731-285-2802.
A reward may be paid for any information that may assist in this investigation.
