Family members announced Wednesday morning that a Crossett woman who had been missing for several days had been located.

Ashley County Sheriff Tommy Sturgeon said Tuesday his office was investigating and searching for Amy Lynn Ferguson of Crossett.

While the full details were not available Wednesday morning,  Ferguson’s mother, Melinda Ferguson, shared on social media that she had been found.

“Amy has been found alive,” Melinda wrote. “Thanks everyone for their help and prayers. Please continue to pray.”

Ashley County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Hunter Smith had filed a report that said Ferguson was last seen on the evening of Dec. 6.  The report says that at approximately 6:30 p.m. that evening, a Drew County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of a vehicle parked in front of an abandoned house on Friendship Lane. A deputy from the Drew County Sheriff’s Office spoke with Amy and she was eventually escorted to Savage Street in Hamburg.

Prior to that, Amy was seen at approximately 5:45 p.m. Sunday morning at Russell Saige Game Reserve located between Monroe and Rayville in Lousiana.

Smith’s timeline also includes information regarding Amy’s last known credit card charges. Smith noted that her card was used at approximately 2 a.m. on Dec. 6 at a gas station in Rayville, La.

Other notes in the report state that Ferguson told family members on Friday, Dec. 4, that she was going to stay at a friend’s home. The friend, however, reported that Ferguson left the residence at around noon Saturday.

Another report at the ACSD said that at approximately 12:50 p.m. the Ashley County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a reckless driver traveling south on United States Highway 425 near Fountain Hill. Approximately 20 minutes, later patrol deputies were able to make contact with the driver, Ferguson. The report stated that after speaking with her, she was released.
