Landrum officer finds missing woman

A Landrum Police Officer found an elderly woman on Tuesday who had been missing out of Boiling Springs, S.C.
Officer Dennis Brown was patroling Landrum Tuesday afternoon when he saw a vehicle matching the description of Phyllis Lucille Adcock, 79, who had been reported missing by her daughter a couple of days prior.
Adcock was driving a 2007 burgundy Kia Spectra, which was parked outside Southside Smokehouse, located at 726 S. Howard Street. Adcock was located inside the restaurant safe and in good health.
Adcock was considered in danger because she has several medical conditions, including dementia, being a diabetic and having high blood pressure, all requiring medications. The daughter reported that her mother has gone off in the past and sometimes went to a former family homestead in North Carolina, but that location had been checked and Adcock had not been seen.
Spartanburg Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer Tony Ivey alerted the media about Adcocks disappearance and sent a press release Tuesday that Adcock was found around 4 p.m.
“She is safe and in good health and is being reunited with her family at this time,” Ivey said on Tuesday. “Our thanks go out to Officer Brown who had received the missing person poster on Mrs. Adcock and used that information to locate her.”
