Family hopes tips lead to finding 85-year-old

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The family of Pandora Duckett, an 85-year-old who went missing more than a week ago, is not losing hope on finding their loved one.

When Duckett went missing, the fear was that she wasn't dressed for the cold weather.

Those low temperatures have returned, but the family is ramping up their search efforts.

They said they’re meeting with Search Dogs South, a Mid-South K-9 search and rescue group.

Shelby County Sheriff's Office believes Pandora Duckett, who has Alzheimers, walked away from her new home on Rosswood Drive last Monday.

A woman told police she gave Duckett a ride to a gas station, then back to her home--but Duckett brought her to the wrong house.

Police said trips are still coming in and they're investigating them all.

The Duckett family said a lot of the tips are credible, but none have panned out.

Family said before she went missing, Duckett talked about having to go to work at TJMaxx, a place she worked for 10 years until 2017.

The Duckett family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for a reward.
