Search Continues for Missing Delta County Woman
The search continues for the missing Delta County women in the Uncompagrhe National Forest.
Mary Finnegan, 82 from Delta County, went missing on Friday, July 15. She was last seen at the Rose Bowl bowling alley in Montrose.
Finnegan's car was found Sunday morning about four or five miles off Divide Rd near the Mesa-Montrose County lines.
Crews are searching the area around the Uncompagrhe National Forest where her car was found. Search efforts have been taxing on the search crews. The terrain they are searching in is remote and rugged, with overgrown and dense vegetation.
Ground teams, ATVs, tracking and dog teams are assisting in the search. Along with helicopters and planes.
Finnegan's car is being processed by the Mesa County Sheriff's office in hopes to find clues to how long the car had been abandoned. There isn't any indication of foul play.
Finnegan is 5'1, 100 lbs, 82 years old, and was last seen wearing jeans, white shirt, blue sweater or sweater vest. Finnegan has dementia and might be confused.
The Mesa County Sheriff's Office is asking if anyone camping, hiking, or recreating in the area in the last week saw her or something that might be helpful to searchers to please give us a call. You can call us on or tip line at (970) 244-3526.
