A vehicle similar to the one Sharpe may be driving.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to be on the lookout for Audrey Sharpe, who disappeared around 10:30 am Sunday from her residence on Creekwood Run.

Deputies say she was driving a blue 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer with a Florida tag #K013NP and was on her way to visit her husband at Lakeland Regional Medical Center, but never made it to her destination.

She is described as a white female with gray hair and brown eyes. She is 5’03” tall and weighs approximately 110 pounds.

Sharpe was last seen wearing a red and blue plaid long-sleeve shirt with black pants.
