ST. CLAIR — Authorities in Franklin County continue to search for Margaret Unger, a 64-year-old woman from St. Clair who has been missing for eight days.

KSDK-TV reports that more than 100 volunteers and dogs have searched the woods near Unger's home but have found no signs of her.

Authorities believe Unger is off medication and may be disoriented. Residents in the St. Clair area are being asked to search their homes and barns, even nearby caves.

How much time has been spent searching the nearby creeks and rivers?

Even though Mrs. Unger left on her own free will doesn't rule out that she may have encountered unanticipated danger.

Why hasn't the FBI been called in?

With all do respect to the county sheriff it is very unlikely that a barefoot, half clothed, disoriented woman is wandering from barn to barn, eluding the public and police. IT is very unlikely that she made it more then a few miles from home.

Come on folks let's use some common sense here.

Search the creeks and rivers. She may have accidently drowned. This is more then likely what happened.

I'm terribly saddened by this and my prayers are for the concerned and caring family.

Please Lord bring them closure.

The same person who posted the comment (Joanna Eiermann) would like it removed. As stated in my request the reason being that it has received no response and is now out dated. No longer appropriate.

I am very upset that there hasn't been an update on this poor woman since April 27th.

Is this how it is? When someone goes missing the authorities search for a day or two and then nothing after that?

This event has moved me deeply and I am not satisfied in accepting that she's gone and that's it.

What's going on with the investigation? Is there one?

I hope and pray one of my loved ones doesn't go missing. I assume I'm on my own if it's more then a few weeks.

I'm sorry if I am offending anyone with my comments. But we need to be more sensitive to family and these matters and not assume anything and exhaust every resource. We should try harder for each other.

Every person counts.
