The Newtown Police Department is looking to the public in hopes of turning up information on the whereabouts of an 81-year-old local woman.

According to the NPD, a Silver Alert has been issued for Gertrude Hampton of Newtown (pictured above), as she has not been seen since Friday, July 26.

Police say that while there is currently no indication of any criminal Mrs. Hampton is "known to become confused and often gets lost while out driving," and that the Silver Alert was issued based on concerns for her health and well-being.

According to the report, Newtown Police believe she may be traveling in the state of Pennsylvania in her late model Subaru Legacy, which also hasn't been seen since Friday.

Gertrude Hampton has white hair and brown eyes, stands about 5'4'' and weighs around 150 lbs.

Anyone with information on Mrs. Hampton's whereabouts or may have seen her is urged to call the Newtown PD immediately at 203-426-5841.
