BIBB COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — Alabama State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) special agents have requested the public’s assistance finding a missing Duncanville woman, whose family is desperate for her return.

Monica Mitchell, 52, was last seen Tuesday in the Oakmulgee National Forest driving a four-door Volkswagen Jetta. Mitchell is 5 feet and 3 inches tall, has blond hair and blue eyes, and weighs about 140 pounds. Her car was found in the forest Wednesday, but she was nowhere in sight.

Her family, including her two sons Clay and Cody Mitchell, are very worried. Clay Mitchell says it’s painful not knowing what happened to her.

“It’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with in my entire life.  Because she has always been there for us and is the best mom anyone could ask for.  It’s so hard not having her around and not knowing whether she is scared or knows what to do,” Clay Mitchell says.

SBI agents have been searching on the ground and by air, but they have been unable to find her. Family members, thankful for the SBI’s efforts, joined in the search Wednesday, Cody Mitchell said.

“We pray for her safe return, and we want to thank everybody who has reached out with leads and and everything that’s been done so far. We want to thank everybody,” Cody Mitchell says.

Clay Mitchell echoes his brother’s sentiment, expressing gratitude for the community’s support.

“I just hope she come’s home and we find her safely somewhere, so I can have my mother back,” Clay Mitchell says.

Anyone with information on Mitchell’s location is urged to contact SBI special agents at 334-418-8852 or 1-800-392-8011. All callers will remain anonymous.
