A missing woman has prompted the state to issue a silver alert.

Lawmen are asking for your help in finding 53 year-old Debra Jean Settles. They don't have a picture of her. Settles was last seen on Ferguson Street in Littleton in Halifax County. Authorities think she may suffer from dementia or some other cognitive impairment.

Officials say she is a black woman, stands 5'4" tall and weighs179 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes.

Settles was last seen wearing a blue hoodie, green shirt, blue jeans, and white/blue shoes.

    Was she found safe? I hope so. I was praying for her. God Bless her.

    This has been happening a lot lately. Who is watching them? No one I guess. When you get to the point where they wonder and you can not find them, it is time to find a sitter, adult daycare or facility. This must be very scary for the person lost when they can not find their way back home. Its also very dangerous to them. I pray they find her safe.

    Um, why are you announcing this without a picture? Are we supposed to go up to every senior and ask them if they are the ones missing? They probably would not know it even if we did! Picture please.

    I believe when a child is missing it is an amber alert, and there was one up here just a few days ago I believe. Just seems its been a few more older individuals wondering off here lately.
