Missing: Sharon Rood

Charles County Sheriff’s officers are asking for the public’s help in locating Sharon Deloris Rood, 81, of Waldorf, who was reported missing by a family member with whom she resides. According to the reporting person, Ms. Rood left her home on February 17 at about 4 p.m. with her son but neither of them have returned. Family members are concerned for her safety and well-being as she is in need of daily medication. Ms. Rood also has dementia and may not be aware of her surroundings. Family members have been able to track them to areas in Pennsylvania, Oxon Hill, and Washington, D.C.  She is likely traveling in a 2014 white Toyota Camry with damage to the right front bumper. Anyone with information is asked to call 9-1-1 or Officer C. Irwin at (301) 932-2222. The investigation is ongoing.
