BENEWAH COUNTY, Idaho -

Search operations will continue at 7:00am on Thursday for a 70-year-old California woman who's been missing in Benewah County, Idaho since Monday. Search and rescue teams are encouraging volunteers to join them in their search for Grinder. If you would like to help look for Grinder, the Incident Command Center is located at Chatcolet on the western shore of Chatcolet Lake in Heyburn State Park. All volunteers need to check in with search managers before participating.

Jacquelyn D. Grinder went missing on June 1st between 9 o'clock and 10 o'clock in the morning. Wednesday, the Benewah County Sheriff's office was joined by the St. Joe Search and Rescue team as well as some people in the area who knew Grinder.

"It's a needle in a haystack," says Lynn Walker who's known Grinder for more than 20 years. Walker tells KHQ Grinder and her husband have been vacationing in the Heyburn State Park for years. The couple had only been at the park for a week before Grinder went missing.

"She'd gone out for her walk in the morning and no one has seen her," says Walker.

This search, however, isn't as simple as finding a missing person. It's made more complicated by Grinder's battle with dementia.

"It is a concern," says Walker. "I lost my father to Alzheimer's so I know what it is when they take off like this. I spent half my time running after him at our ranch."

Walker and many others have spent countless hours searching for their lost friend, a search they hope will end soon.

"I hope we find her well. I hope we find her able to recover from this...and I hope we find her soon."

Grinder has been described as 5'11", 170 pounds wearing a white hat, white T-shirt and dark shorts. If you have any information you're asked to contact the Benewah County Sheriff's Office at 208-245-2555
