Ella Murray, of 3311 Gate Road, Gordonville, was reported missing by Ms. Mary Denmark, a roommate of the elderly woman. Mrs. Murray was reported missing at 9 a.m., but may have left her home earlier in the morning.

Mrs. Murray is described as being 5'6" tall, weighing about 120 pounds. Shewas last seen wearing a red and white top with lavendar-colored velvet pants.
