WORCESTER COUNTY, Md.- The search for a missing Worcester County woman continues while family members hold out hope that she will be found alive.

Seventy-seven-year-old Helen Davis was last seen Monday afternoon at her home just off South Point Road near Berlin. Her son, Ryan Putney, said that for her age, Davis is still a very active person.

"She's really strong. Strong willed and a lot of fun. She's got a lot of energy and she is very happy all of the time.  And she is very strong physically, she is very strong, too," said Putney.

However, David's son said she may also suffer from dementia.  He returned home Monday evening around midnight, and soon after, reported his mother missing to the county sheriff's office.

"Within 15 to 20 minutes there was a trooper here. She did an interview. Probably within an hour to two after that, they had helicopters with the bright lights searching all of the marsh and the water in the immediate vicinity," added Putney.

The police search also included dogs and dive teams, but there's been no luck so far.  Numerous flyers have been distributed in the community and signs are posted.  Putney said it feels like everyone is helping in the search for his mother and he holds out hope that she will be found safe and sound.

"Memorial Day night, if it is a vacation home around here, a lot of places are unoccupied, particularly after Memorial Day. Everybody went home, so chances are, I am thinking, if she is going to be found alive, she is going to be on somebody's porch on a lounge chair at an unoccupied house," said Putney.

Helen Davis is approximately 5-foot-6 with salt and pepper hair.  She was last seen wearing light blue capri pants with a blue and white blouse that had a flower print.  Anyone with information is asked to call the Worcester County Sheriff's Office at (410) 632-1111.
