Search continues for missing Tarkington area woman

Search dogs are attempting to track a 64-year-old Tarkington area woman who disappeared Monday night from her home in Sam Houston Lake Estates.

Authorities learned Wednesday that a game camera on a neighbor’s property captured her image around 8:30 p.m. Monday.

As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, there has been no other sighting reported.

The missing woman is Sherry Vause. She is described as 5-foot, 4-inches tall weighing 160 pounds. She is a white female with gray hair and brown eyes.

Vause was last seen by her husband Monday morning at their home at the end of a private road off the main road.

According to Liberty County Sheriff’s Capt. Ken DeFoor, Vause has medical issues that should have prevented her from traveling far from home. She recently had a hip replacement and is suffering from the early stages of dementia.

Texas EquuSearch volunteers will do a grid search for Vause after the search dogs have exhausted their leads.
