Raleigh woman reported missing in Nash County

May 22, 2019

The Nash County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday asked for the public’s help in finding a missing Raleigh woman.

A relative of Sarah Denise Patterson told authorities that the 51-year-old woman hasn’t been seen since last Thursday, when she drove off from the 4200 block of Biltmore Lane in Spring Hope in her burgundy 2010 Honda Accord.

Patterson didn’t show up for work as a certified nursing assistant on Saturday or Sunday, which the relative said was out of character for her, authorities said.

“There’s no concrete evidence of where she was going or who she was with. That’s what’s so puzzling,” Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone said.

A resident of the Pine Winds Apartments complex in south Raleigh, where Patterson lives, said she knocked on his door last Wednesday asking if he wanted her kitchen table. The resident, who didn’t want to be named, said nothing seemed unusual, and Patterson didn’t mention that she was planning to move.

The resident said law enforcement forced their way into Patterson’s apartment on Tuesday searching for her and asked him whether he had seen or heard anything suspicious.

Investigators said there has been no activity on her credit cards since last week.

Patterson is described as 5 feet 4 inches tall and approximately 180 pounds, with brown eyes, short brown hair and prescription glasses. Her Accord has North Carolina tag FBK-8456.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts can called the Nash County Sheriff’s Office at 252-459-1510 or Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111.
