A Silver Alert issued Wednesday aims to help find an 80-year-old Meridian woman last seen a week ago at the Island View Casino Resort in Gulfport.

Betty Burnside Boutwell was last seen about 11 p.m. Oct. 25, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain said Thursday.

Strain said Boutwell’s relatives reported she has a medical condition that may impair her judgment.

She may be driving a black 2011 Ford Taurus with a Mississippi disabled tag with the number A8764, he said.

Family members described her as 5-feet-5, weighing 165 pounds and with short, gray hair and blue eyes. She was wearing glasses in a picture provided to the media.

Anyone who has seen her or knows where she is is asked to call the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department at 601-486-4952.
