WINSTON-SALEM -- Winston-Salem continued their investigation into a missing 62-year-old woman on Monday by scouring a vacant lot where family members found a backpack they think belonged to her.

Fifty officers and a dog searched the eight-acre lot for hours looking for evidence.

No one has seen Mary Magdalene Smith since March of this year.

The vacant lot is on Patterson Avenue about a mile from the motel where Smith was last seen.

If you have information on Smith call the police department at 336-773-7700.
