St. Clair County sheriff’s deputies on Thursday were searching for a Belleville woman who hadn’t been seen since Monday, when she walked away from a group home without her medication.
Police were searching for Mildred L. Kelly, 57.
Sheriff’s Capt. Bruce Fleshren said the woman left the home on Kingsway Drive about 10 a.m. Monday, and had not been heard from as of Thursday morning. The woman has left in the past to visit a daughter in East Alton, police said.
The woman was reported missing Wednesday. Fleshren said it wasn’t clear why the report was made two days after she left, “other than they expected her to return as she usually does.”
Police said Kelly requires daily medication.
She is about 5-foot-2 and weighs about 195. She was last seen wearing a checkered shirt and jeans.
Police asked that anyone with information contact the Sheriff’s Department at 618-277-3505 or call 911.
