SOUTH BOSTON, Va. — Family members are still searching for a Burlington woman who was reported missing, earlier this week.

Shayne Suffern would have never would have imagined the past week would have been filled with so much worry and pain.

On Friday, Suffern made a trip up to South Boston Virginia to pass out fliers with hopes of finding his 90-year-old aunt Ruzie Suggs.

Suggs who is from Burlington has been missing since September 8th. She was last seen dropping her friend off with her brown miniature poodle at a home on Lincoln Street in Greensboro.

Investigators believe she may have gotten confused and made a wrong turn trying to get home.

“I went by her house on Monday. I looked in the Harvard and peaked through her windows. I didn’t see her. I just knew something wasn’t right,” Suffern said.

Investigators say activity on Suggs’ cellphone hit a tower in the South Boston and Clarksville Virginia areas between 1 and 4 a.m. on Monday morning. Since then her phone has been off and there’s been no sign of her trying to use her credit or debit cards.

Suggs has mild dementia and familly members are concerned because she’s without her medication.

“My hearts just breaks right now. I can’t believe she would drive this distance by her herself,” Suffern said.

Suggs’ car is described as a white 2005 Cadillac Deville with a personalized tag that says “Ruzie 1″

The family is offering a $2,000 reward for any information.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Burlington Police Department at 336-229-3500.
