Multiple agencies are searching for a missing 83-year-old woman, Beverly Moumblow, according to Chief Deputy Rocky Harnen with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.

Harnen said that according to the woman's family, she is an Alzheimer’s disease patient.

She went missing from her home around 5 p.m. Thursday in the area of Highway 79 in the Skyline community.

According to Harnen, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency arrived with a search helicopter. Other agencies involved include the Jackson County Rescue Squad, Hot Top Fire, Marshall County Fire and a K-9 unit from Marshall County.
