Search Continues for Missing Worcester County Woman

WORCESTER COUNTY, Md.- Helen David has been missing from her South Point area home in Worcester County since Memorial Day and the search for her is still ongoing.

David, 77, who suffers from dementia, was reported missing by her son nearly three months ago.  Since then, not a trace of David has been located by her family, friends or law enforcement.  The lack of clues and leads has left her family to formulate their own ideas on where she may be.

"I am thinking that she may have been picked up that night when she was offered a ride and the people who picked her up may have thought there might be some dollar signs in it for them down the road.  And then over a period of time, they may have realized they are in deeper than they expected to be," said David's son, Ryan Putney.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office tells WBOC that there is still one final water search being planned for the near future.  Her son said that he understands the suspicion around the case but simply just wants his mother to return home.

"That's mostly what happens with families.  When someone is missing in a family, the person closest to them is considered a suspect or a person of interest and yeah, obviously that would be me in this case.  But I don't have anything to do with it," said Putney.

Putney says there is a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to his mother's safe return home.  Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Helen David is asked to contact the Worcester County Sheriff's Office at (410) 632-1111.
