LAURENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Laurens County Sheriff's Office is searching for a missing elderly woman.

Deputies said 75-year-old Dorothy Madden was last seen Sunday morning on Pony Trail in the Hickory Tavern and Princeton area of Laurens County.

Madden has gray hair and was last seen wearing brown pants, a red leather jacket and was possibly carrying a purse.

Deputies set up a command center in the area to help with their search efforts.

"Right now we're focusing on 12 different areas," said Lance Roper, with Hickory Tavern Rescue. "We've broke down the landscape into 12 different zones. Right now we're exhausting every resource that we can - foot patrols, as well as ATV, horses."

Officials said Madden has Alzheimer's disease and may seem confused or disoriented.

Crews are expected to continue searching at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Laurens County Sheriff's Office at 864-984-4967.
