She was last seen in the house napping with her husband. Investigators said she is suspected to be on foot because she does not have access to a vehicle and no one is believed to have picked her up.

Police said Callahan suffers from dementia and medical conditions that cause her to be unsteady on her feet.

She is described as a white female, 5’4” tall, 160 pounds, with thinning gray/white hair, and possibly wearing eye glasses. Callahan was last seen wearing a nightgown (unknown color) and no shoes.

Anybody with information on the whereabouts of Delila Callahan is urged to contact the Cumberland County Communication Center at 931-484-2230.
