D'IBERVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Police are searching for a Louisiana woman whose car was found abandoned along an interstate highway in Mississippi.

Linda Thompson, 67, was last seen Friday at her home in Baton Rouge. Police found Thompson's car later that day 140 miles away along Interstate 10 in D'Iberville, Mississippi, the Sun Herald reported.

D'Iberville police Lt. Jason King said officers towed the 2005 Lexus and got a warrant to search it, but found nothing unusual inside.

Baton Rouge police said Tuesday that they believe Thompson suffers from mental illness. Police said authorities cannot rule out the possibility of foul play.

King described Thompson as having blond hair and green eyes. He said no one has been able to contact her since she was last seen.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the D’Iberville Police Department at 228-396-4252 or the Baton Rouge Police Department at 225-389-8617.
