Lynn Rickard, a Kansasville woman, remains missing after she walked away from her home on June 25, but law enforcement officials are still out looking for her.

Deputies with the Racine County Sheriff’s Department and officers with the Milwaukee Police Department Mounted Unit searched Tuesday for Rickard, who is 59 years old, has a mental illness and is dependent on oxygen.

“The Racine County Sheriff’s office has used every resource available and continues to seek closure for the Rickard family,” said Sheriff Christopher Schmaling.

Rickard was last seen walking through a field about a half mile from her home near Shoen Road, Highway 75 near Dover on June 25.

A massive search was conducted a few days after her disappearance that involved law enforcement and fire officials from as far as Dousman, Menominee Falls, Fontana, Whitewater and the City of Delevan. But that was unsuccessful according to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.
