Crews searching for missing Brookhaven elderly woman

BROOKHAVEN, Ga. — A search is underway for a missing woman who was last seen on Christmas Eve at her Brookhaven church.

Channel 2 Action News received surveillance images of 78-year-old Janet Sue Miller taken earlier in the day from the Kroger on Peachtree Road.

Miller wasn't reported missing until Dec. 27. Authorities said because it was in the middle of the holiday it was difficult for police to contact roommates and friends to get information they needed.

“It was bad timing, but nonetheless made all the efforts possible we can made resources available to us," Carlos Nino with the Brookhaven Police Department said.

Nearly two dozen police officers and dog handlers set up a command center on Tuesday and set off on their second major effort to find Miller.

Freezing temperatures and no reported sightings have police and her church family concerned.

“We are just hoping for a safe return. At this point (it's) been more than 10 days," Nino said.

Police hope Miller is at a local hospital and can't remember her name.

Miller is 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs about 90 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Brookhaven Police Department.
