Betty Spencer just wants her sister to come.

"I want her to come home, where ever she is at, let us know she is alright," says Spencer.

Jo Ann Spencer was last seen at her home on Spencer Lane in Harriston five days ago. Her sister Betty says this is completely out of character of her sister.

"She is a home body, just like me," says Spencer.

Spencer has two grown children and two grandchildren. This has certainly taken a toll on them.

"The family is pretty well upset and under a lot of distress right now," says Gene Spencer, brother in law of Jo Ann Spencer.

The Augusta County Sheriff's office conducted a helicopter search this morning, along with a ground search on Route 340.

"The problem we're dealing with right now is all the snow and the ice on the ground, and then we have weather coming in Wednesday and Thursday, so our search efforts are limited," says Sheriff Fisher.

But, for now her family says the only thing they can do is pray and hope she comes home.

"I hope somebody in the neighborhood or in around the area recognizes her and tells her we need her to come home," says Gene Spencer.
