KATY, Texas – A search is underway for a woman who went missing Tuesday while walking her dog in a Katy area neighborhood, according to Texas EquuSearch.
Sherry Noppe, 63, of Katy, was last seen Tuesday afternoon near the 1800 block of Sparrows Ridge.
“She’s got an early to mild onset of Alzheimer’s, dementia. She’s probably lost, probably confused [and] doesn’t know where she’s at. I’m sure she’s scared, been outside all night,” said her son Justin Noppe.
Family members said Noppe was walking her black lab, Max, and has not been seen or heard from since. Justin said family, friends, and search teams believe she may have gone towards George Bush Park which is near their home.
“You can get lost back there at George Bush Park if you go off the beaten trail. But she knows better not to and with what she was wearing, denim shorts a white t-shirt, and just white tennis shoes, she would have gotten bit by a snake,” Justin Noppe said.
Anyone with information surrounding Noppe’s whereabouts is being asked to call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-755-7427 or Texas EquuSearch at 281-309-9500.
