ATTALA COUNTY, Miss. (WLBT) - A large search of the property of a missing woman in Attala County turned up no new leads Tuesday.
Vickie Ellington, 53, has been missing since Jan. 27.
Ellington was last seen in a parking lot of a Wal-Mart in Louisville, Miss. on surveillance tape.
The search focused along Miss. County Road 5216 about 3 and a half miles southeast of Kosciusko.
Vickie Ellington lived in a house, on a hill, along County Road 5216 with her 8 year old grandson, she was raising.
Ellington's husband died of cancer about a year and a half ago.
Sheriff William Lee thinks foul play is involved because he said a woman like this just doesn't walk away.
The sheriff said Ellington was a woman "who enjoyed life."
Tuesday's search was through the woods on her 100 acres of property and was conducted by Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks personnel and other volunteer law enforcement officers.
"Right now we are just searching the property, to eliminate the property as to where she might be," Chief Deputy Tim Nail of Attala County said. "Ah we are just looking at every angle that we have right now."
"Have you found anything new? No sir, at this time we have not found anything."
Ellington's Chevy Suburban was found unharmed in the Louisville, Miss. Wal-Mart parking lot.
The surveillance tape last showed her walking toward a McDonald's and Taco Bell when she just walked out of the camera's range without meeting anyone.
We counted 14 trucks out here with personnel in them.
The personnel combed the woods looking for anything they could find.
