On Wednesday evening January 21st at approximately 7:10pm, a resident in the 200 block of Mink Hutton Road near Kisatchie contacted the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office reporting that an elderly couple stopped by his residence requesting directions to the Gorum community.
NPSO Deputies recognized the provided descriptions of the vehicle and occupants as a couple that left their residence in the past that required law enforcement assistance to find them.
Deputies went to the couple’s residence discovering they were not at home.
NPSO Deputies issued a law enforcement (BOLO) message requesting the assistance of the Vernon and Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Offices.
At approximately 8:20pm, Natchitoches deputies learned that couple had been at the Simpson Store on La. Hwy 8 asking for directions to Gorum, and left traveling towards Rapides Parish.
Throughout the night, NPSO deputies have checked areas in Natchitoches Parish including Kisatchie National Forest which is in close proximity but have been unable to locate the couple.
