BENTON COUNTY, Mo. (WDAF) -- The Benton County sheriff said 48-year-old Echo Lloyd was last seen in early May.

Lloyd was last seen on Mother’s Day in Edwards, Missouri. Her daughter said she talked to her that day and brought her mother flowers and a card and left them on her porch.

At some point that weekend both Lloyd’s cellphone and home phone started going straight to voicemail, her daughter Kelsey Smith said.

“My mom did not just wander off,” Smith said. “Something happened to her, and it’s time to figure out what it is.”

Benton County Sheriff Eric Knox said they’re doing their best to find her. He got the Missouri State Highway Patrol involved, along with the FBI. They’ve done ground searches with volunteer firefighters.

Knox said based on what they found, it does not seem as though Lloyd has the resources to be on her own. There has been no activity on her cellphone, and no use of her bank account. Smith said Lloyd takes medication she needs.

“She’s on several medications that she does not have with her,” Knox said, “nor does she have her billfold or her car. She is absolutely missing without a trace.”

If you have any information on this case, please call the Missouri State Highway Patrol at (573) 526-6178.
