Local post office worker missing

Police are searching for a missing Grady County woman and employee of the Bainbridge Post Office who was last seen leaving her home early Tuesday morning.

Grady County Sheriff Harry Young said they have been actively searching for 68-year-old Priscilla Brock of 365 Peebles Still Road in Grady County, who was last seen at around 3 a.m. on Tuesday, April 28.

According to Young, she was seen leaving her home in her vehicle, a light blue 1991 Lincoln Town Car, by a neighbor who became suspicious and followed Brock several miles before returning home when Brock turned onto Pleasant Grove Road—where one of her friends lives.

Brock works at the Bainbridge Post Office and was on vacation, said Young. He said Brock’s home did not appear that she had been preparing to leave town. She left her dog at the home and did not appear to have taken any of her clothing with her, according to Young.

On Wednesday, the Georgia State Patrol helicopter extensively searched the northern area of Grady County and specifically Pleasant Grove Road where her vehicle was last seen, said Young. He said a private pilot with an airplane also searched eastern areas of the county to no avail.

A be-on-the-lookout call was sent out to law enforcement agencies in Grady County and all surrounding counties for Brock and her car that she was last seen driving.

Brock is 5-foot-11 and weighs approximately 175 pounds. She has gray hair and hazel eyes.

If you have information about this missing person, please contact the Grady County Sheriff’s Office by calling (229) 377-5200 or call the Decatur-Grady E-911.
