Weeklong search for Bogalusa woman last seen at Bush gas station yields no firm clues, investigators say _lowres

Nanette Me’Shell King

More than a week of searching for Nanette Me’Shell King, a Bogalusa woman who was last seen Sept. 20 near the Bush gas station where she worked, has yielded no “firm clues” to her whereabouts, a St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman said Thursday.

King was last seen about 1 p.m. as she left her job at the Shell station, Capt. George Bonnett said. She was wearing a purple uniform shirt, khaki pants and pink flip-flops and was driving a 2006 Mitsubishi Galant.

Deputies have searched a large area near the station, her home and the expected route she would take home, using boats, helicopters, all-terrain vehicles and deputies on foot, but nothing has panned out, Bonnett said.

He characterized the search as “high intensity.” Deputies have searched the locks in the Pearl River and flown over areas inaccessible on foot.

The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office also is taking part in the search.

King is 42 years old and 5 feet, 4 inches tall. She has brown hair with green highlights and hazel eyes.

The Sheriff’s Office asks anyone who may have heard from King or seen her to call Detective Timothy Crabtree at (985) 726-7839.
