71 Year Old Woman Missing In Lexington County
Lexington County Sheriff’s Department detectives are seeking help from citizens in locating a 71-year-old woman who was reported missing from her home in the St. Andrews community on Thursday, June 30. Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said detectives are concerned about the well-being of Norma Melton Smith, 71, who lives at Woodland Village Apartments at 848 Beacon Hill Road, because Smith has a medical condition that can cause her to become disoriented.
Deputies entered Smith as a missing person on the National Crime Information Center computer database. Smith is 5-foot-6 and weighs 160 pounds, Metts said. Smith has white hair and brown eyes. Smith might be driving a 2005 light-brown Chevrolet Uplander sport-utility vehicle, with South Carolina license plate CUP 667. Smith owns the vehicle, which is missing from her home.
Deputies arrived at Smith’s home at 11:04 p.m. on Thursday after Kim Faulkner, Smith’s daughter, reported her mother was missing, Metts said. Faulkner told deputies she last saw her mother at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28 and last spoke with her by telephone at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29. Smith has a cellular telephone, but Smith left the cell phone at her home. Metts asked anyone with information about Smith or her whereabouts to call the Sheriff’s Department at (803) 785-8230 or CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
