CEDAR CITY — The Iron County Sheriff’s Office is asking for community members to assist in a search of the Three Peaks Recreation area for a missing person on Friday.
Carol Stratton went missing on Oct. 27, 2019, after wandering into unfamiliar terrain. She was last seen near 3700 W. 400 North in Cedar City wearing an orange and blue sweater with a red hat. Stratton is nonverbal and has dementia.
Iron County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Dave Mitchell told Cedar City News officials took advantage of all available resources in an attempt to find her last year, but they are not giving up.
“We exhausted everything we had last year with negative results,” Mitchell said. “A lot of this, too, is for the family just to let them know we haven’t given up and we’re doing everything we humanly can to try to find her.”
Although officials have no new leads, Mitchell said he hopes to bring closure for Stratton’s family.
