Last week, the Guilford County Sheriff’s department put out a media alert about a missing teenager with cognitive issues, and, this week, on Tuesday, Nov. 22, the department asked for the public’s help locating another person with similar issues. This time it’s a 75-year-old woman who was last seen the night before her disappearance was reported.

At just after 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, deputies from the Guilford County Sheriff’s Department responded to 4465 Old Randleman Road in Greensboro due to a missing persons call.

There’s added concern in this case because the woman – Phyllis Carter Rollins – has “cognitive impairments which may affect her judgement.”

She was last seen on Monday, Nov. 21 at about 10:30 p.m. at the Old Randleman Road address to which officers responded.

Law enforcement, friends and family members have been searching for Rollins – and now the Sheriff’s Department wants the public’s help.

Rollins, a 75-year-old white female, stands about 5 feet, 3 inches tall, and weighs about 145 pounds. She has short gray hair, brown eyes, and she is “possibly” wearing a black t-shirt with the words “Frank & Larry’s” printed on it. She’s also thought to be wearing a navy-blue jacket with white lining, sweatpants or “loose-fitting pants,” as well as boots that are either black or brown.

Rollins is believed to still be in the area – in either Greensboro, High Point or the suburbs of Guilford County.

A “Silver Alert” for Rollins has been issued. That’s a broadcast of information about missing persons that’s generally used in the cases of elderly people who have Alzheimer’s Disease or other cognitive challenges – though Silver Alerts are sometimes used to help find missing youngsters with cognitive impairments as well.

This is an ongoing investigation and anyone with information is being asked to contact Guilford County Detective J. Allen at 336-641-2799. Those with helpful information can also call Guilford County Crime Stoppers at 336-373-1000.
