Authorities are searching for a 52-year-old woman who suffers from mental illness and was reported missing on Saturday, said Baton Rouge police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola Jr.

Yvette Nettles, of 10444 Avenue F, Baton Rouge, was last seen in the area between Mills Avenue and Blount Road, Coppola said. She is about 5 feet, 4 inches tall and was wearing blue jeans and a black sweater. 

The possibility of foul play cannot be ruled out, Coppola said.
