Lynn Rickard was 59 years old when she went missing from her home, Dover, WI, on June 25th, 2017.
Lynn was dependent on an oxygen tank which was not with her when she went missing. Lynn suffers from mental illness. The doctors took her off of her usual anti anxiety medication due to a medical procedure and it was causing some paranoia and disorientation.
Lynn was last seen walking naked towards a field west of her home at about 7 am the morning that she was reported missing. Police were able to track her footprints in the marsh before they had disappeared.
The search for Lynn was the largest for a missing person in the local area history. The search had more than 100 first-responders, tracking and cadaver K-9s and drones. After several weeks, the case had gone dormant with no leads or information. “The search for Lynn (Rickard) lasted several days with every tip lead being exhausted,” Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling said. “It has always been and remains our focus to bring closure to the Rickard family, and I hope and pray that some day soon we will be able to do just that.”
Lynn's daughter said that prior to her mother's disappearance, they talked on the phone several times a day. She states "I know shes out there" and continues the search and has now hired a Private Investigator to find her mother.
Lynn is 5'3, 150lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. She has a linear scar on her lower abdomen. She would now be 62 years old.
