Police search for woman continues
Several confusing phone calls have arisen following a report of a Federal Way woman who disappeared May 21 and police want to see her themselves before they close the case.
A woman who claimed to be Carolyn Johnsons cousin called The Mirror last week and said Johnson had stayed the night at a friends house and was fine.
But a woman who said she is Johnsons sister called later to say Johnson still hasnt been found.
Federal Way Police spokesman Kurt Schwan said Johnson called her caretaker last Wednesday to say she was okay, but refused to say where she is.
Police said Johnson is a mentally challenged, 56-year-old African American woman. She is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall, 140 pounds, with hazel eyes, black and gray hair and no teeth. She was last seen wearing a puffy red jacket with a black collar, black sweat pants and white shoes.
Because Johnson is mentally challenged, Schwan said police will continue looking for her until they find her despite phone calls saying shes fine.
In our eyes, shes missing and we need to find her and make sure shes OK, he said. We want to speak with her and see her.
