Nobody knows where 72-year-old Carol McHugh, suffering from dementia, went after she took a walk with her dog near her home in Inverness on June 8, 2017.

The cold February weather did not deter the Inverness Sertoma Crew from joining over 90 volunteers as part of the Carol McHugh Search Team, organized by Carol’s friends and family members. The continued search for Carol has helped spread awareness of dementia to communities in Citrus County.

Bud Osborn worked the volunteer check-in station, while Suesan Alvis, Rainer Jakob and Dolly Mayes joined the certified search and rescue team by methodically combing the woods off Sand Piper Drive, Inverness where Carol McHugh was last seen.
