How to report a missing person
The Cass County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday it has joined the search for a missing 49-year-old Overland Park woman.
The woman, Sylvia Anne Ussery-Pearson, left her home Monday and never returned, Overland Park police said.
Police said Ussery-Pearson’s disappearance is “extremely out of character for her and her family is concerned.”
In a news release, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office said its investigators were assisting Overland Park police with the missing persons case.
Investigators on Tuesday afternoon were searching a rural area south of Harrisonville, following up on leads, the sheriff’s office said.
Earlier Tuesday, Lenexa police temporarily staged a perimeter around a home near 82nd Terrace and Constance Street. Overland Park police spokesman John Lacy said Lenexa police were holding the house in relation to the search for Ussery-Pearson.
Ussery-Pearson is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 146 pounds.
