DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP, abc24.com) - Authorities in West Tennessee are searching by helicopter and on the ground for a missing mother of four after her vehicle was found abandoned with a flat tire.
Karen Johnson Swift, a 44-year-old Dyersburg woman, was reported missing on Sunday by her husband. Her car was found on a road, but her cell phone has not been found.
Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box said a Tennessee Highway Patrol helicopter equipped with a heat-sensor performed an aerial search Tuesday morning. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is also forensic
processing Swift's car.
Box said the investigation is still being treated as a missing person case and there have not been any signs of foul play at this time.
