OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -- The Overland Park Police Department and Cass County Sheriff’s Office  are seeking help locating a missing woman. 

Sylvia Pearson left her home on Monday morning and has not returned. 

This is extremely out of character for her, and her family is concerned. 

Pearson is 5'7" tall and weighs 146 pounds.

Later on Tuesday, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office said they are currently assisting the Overland Park Police Department with their investigation to locate Pearson.

Investigators said they are following up on leads and information as to the possible whereabouts of Pearson. Currently, investigators are searching a rural area of Cass County south of Harrisonville.

KCTV5 News has confirmed the area being searched is owned by Representative Vicky Hartzler. Representatives from Hartzler's office told KCTV5 News that the congresswoman is aware of the situation and that the family is cooperating with investigators.

Craig McMein, a Cass County Lieutenant, said the location they are searching is at the intersection of State Route TT Highway and 299th Street. He went on to say this is the only location that they are searching, and they are going to stay overnight to continue the search. 

A couple hours later, police said that the Hartlzer property is no longer being searched and it is no longer an area of interest.

If you know of her location or have seen her, please contact the Overland Park police at 913-344-8750.
