It’s been three years since a Hope woman was last seen. Decatur County law enforcement is asking for the public’s help to find Donna Mitchell.
February 11 was the three-year anniversary of Mitchell’s disappearance. At the time, she was believed to be in extreme danger and would be in need of medical assistance. Mitchell was heavily dependent on her medication and when she left her Hope residence she didn’t take her medication with her.
The Decatur County Sheriff’s Department says Mitchell was last seen at the Brown Bottle Liquor store in Hartsville. Her destination was an address in the area of County Road 60 SW and CR 600 South in Decatur County. She was driving a maroon Chevrolet Trailblazer4 with an Indiana license plate – 902QAK.
The vehicle has never been recovered.
Aerial searches have taken place over the area with no results. Also, ponds and lakes, where investigators have been allowed on the property legally, have been searched with sonar. Again, with no results.
An additional set of investigators have been assigned to the case to pursue old and new leads.
Mitchell was born Jan. 2, 1963. She is described as a white female, five feet, three inches tall, and weighing 115 pounds. She has brown hair, brown eyes and was last seen wearing glasses, a tan Carhart jacket, and blue jeans with a flower decal on the pant leg.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department at 812-663-8125.
