The search for 78-year-old Eleanor Alexander continues into its fourth day with no trace of the missing woman.

This morning, the command center for the search was moved to Providence Baptist Church at 918 Providence Church Road. So far, volunteers have searched a two-mile radius around Alexander’s home, and today, another group of volunteers will be searching with dogs further along Highway 34.

Hundreds of volunteers from Coweta and the surrounding counties have assisted, searching on foot, by horseback, with ATVs and by any other means of negotiating the wooded areas around Alexander’s home.

“Throughout the whole endeavor, it’s been tremendous,” said Robert Beavers, Alexander’s nephew. “I couldn’t even tell you how many people have helped.”

Beavers said they have the opportunity for a National Guard team to assist in the search today. Experts have told the volunteers that it is likely that Alexander is still very close to home, but at this moment, the chances of Alexander still being mobile are very small.
