(CENTREVILLE) – The search continues for a missing Three Rivers area woman.

St. Joseph County Undersheriff Jason Bingaman says on Thursday, deputies along with the Pokagon Tribal Police DNR Officer searched the area where 73 year old Marilee Furlong was last seen. The search was conducted on foot and by using vehicles and a drone.

Then on Friday, the Michigan Professional Search and Rescue Team assembled multiple K-9 searches along with drone searches as well as searches by foot, horseback and by vehicle. The Great Lakes Drone Company also assisted with additional drone searches.

Bingaman says his department has been working directly with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office because of the search locations occurring inside of Cass County.

Marilee Furlong was reported missing from her daughter’s home on Flatbush Road in Flowerfield Township around 9 AM Monday.

Marilee is approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall, 120 pounds with long gray hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing red long-sleeve pajamas, but she could have changed into a red and pink plaid button up shirt with a green undershirt and blue jeans. Marilee is believed to be wearing gray and blue sneakers and carrying a brown leather purse.

Marilee has Alzheimer’s and Dementia and it’s unknown where she may be heading.

Bingaman is asking anyone with information that could lead to locating Marilee to contact St. Joseph County Central Dispatch by calling 269-467-4195.
