MARINETTE (WLUK) -- Two days of searches by air, land, water and on horseback have failed to find an 83-year-old woman with dementia who is missing from Marinette County, sheriff's officials say.

A Silver Alert was issued Wednesday for Jeanette L. Fullerton. She was last seen around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at her home at N10096 Four Lakes Road in Wausaukee. Authorities initially said they believed she may have tried to walk to her daughter's house about a quarter-mile away.

Fullerton is described as 4-foot-10, 160 pounds with gray medium-length hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink and white shirt with pink pants.

If you where she might be, call the Marinettte County Sheriff's Office at (715) 732-7607.
