SAN DIEGO – Deputies searched a Scripps Ranch neighborhood Monday evening after a resident reported seeing an elderly woman who matched the description of missing woman, Sally Estabrook, authorities said.

"[The resident] described her as wearing dirty white pants, and had a sweater, blue in color, tied around her waist," Jan Caldwell with the SD County Sheriff's Dept. said.

Estabrook was last seen wearing white capri pants and a teal top.

The resident reported seeing an elderly woman walking through their neighborhood along Scripps Trail and Semillon Blvd. around 3:00 p.m., according to a San Diego Sheriff's Department official.

San Diego Sheriff’s Department launched their helicopter to aid in the search for the woman.

The search was called off before 9:00 p.m.

Sheriff's officials still advised residents to keep an eye out for the missing woman.

"Please check your yards, outbuildings, if you have boats, sheds, RV's that are close that might be unlocked, please check," Caldwell said. "She could have been picked up, she could have been brought here. It's highly unlikely she walked [to Scripps Ranch]."

Caldwell also stressed if a person did in fact pick up and drop off Estabrook, they are not in trouble.

She urged people who might have any information to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

A 75-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s disease went missing from the Pinezanita RV Park and Campground in Julian on October 4.

Sally Estabrook apparently wandered away from the campground while her husband was showering.

Since then, volunteer search-and-rescue personnel have been combing the area since.
