Pennington County, Rapid City — The Pennington County Sheriff's Office has issued a heartfelt plea to the public for assistance in locating 79-year-old Nancy Baker, who went missing on August 18, 2023, and has not been heard from since. Nancy's sudden disappearance has raised concerns due to her early dementia diagnosis, making her situation all the more urgent.
Nancy left her residence in Rapid City at approximately 2:30 pm on August 18 and has not been in contact with her family since that time. Distressingly, her cell phone is currently off, preventing any means of tracking or communication. Given her medical condition, every passing moment is critical in ensuring her safety and well-being.
Adding to the complexity of the search is Nancy's unfamiliarity with the area, having recently moved to the region. Her silver 2008 Toyota Camry, bearing a Minnesota license plate with the number NZX610, is also missing. This information is being disseminated in hopes that anyone who spots her vehicle will come forward to assist in her safe recovery.
Investigative efforts have revealed that Nancy was last seen around noon on August 19, 2023, in Badlands National Park. This crucial detail has directed search efforts toward the park, as authorities work tirelessly to piece together her movements and trace her steps.
In light of these circumstances, the Pennington County Sheriff's Office urges anyone with information regarding Nancy Baker's whereabouts to come forward immediately. The public is the key to locating Nancy and reuniting her with her worried family. If you have any information or have encountered Nancy or her vehicle, please reach out to Investigator Rio Shearer at the Pennington County Sheriff's Office through the contact number (605) 394-6113.
