K-9s, drones deployed in search for missing Orange County woman


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) – The community is being asked to help locate a missing 75-year-old woman near Chapel Hill, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said.

In a Facebook post Wednesday afternoon, the sheriff’s office said Mary Anne Rosenman wandered away from home between 4 and 6 a.m. on Wednesday.

Rosenman “is 5 foot 4 with blonde hair, believed to be wearing a blue green nightgown and gray tennis shoes.”
