(Burlington, NC) -- The family of 90-year-old Ruzie Dixon Suggs is offering a $2,000 reward for any pertinent information that leads to her safe return.
Mrs. Suggs of Burlington was reported missing Monday after family members could not reach her Sunday and Monday. Her nephew and niece, Shayne and Rochelle Suffern went to her Burlington home and discovered she had not returned and both her car and nine-year-old brown poodle were also missing. Burlington police issued a silver alert Monday. Mrs. Suggs was last seen Saturday afternoon when she dropped off a friend on Lincoln Street in Greensboro.
Police have also expanded their search of Mrs. Suggs to South Boston, Virginia and Clarksville, Virginia saying her cell phone records show calls were attempted from those areas. Mrs. Suggs is driving a 2005 white Cadillac Deville with personalized tags that say 'Ruzie1'.
"We are praying that this reward will encourage more people to get involved in the search for our aunt, and that someone will provide her with some assistance to get her safely home. We miss her and want her back with us as soon as possible," says Shayne Suffern, her nephew.
