*********FOUND***************** **********FOUND********** *********FOUND**************

Local Reader & Daily Ridge friend is desperately searching for his missing mother. Her disappearance is a mystery. She was not sick or ill that we know of and she had just left seeing family member who had a baby. Here is what her son wrote:
I desperately need all of you right now. It shatters my heart to have to be writing this. My beautiful best friend and mother, Darlene Baxter-Pate, is missing. She left Tampa General Hospital yesterday (3-24-16) just before 1PM (after visiting a family member who had a baby) and was headed home to Eagle Lake, but never made it. She is driving a white PT Cruiser Convertible with a black top and a stuffed bulldog sitting on the dashboard. She was wearing light colored blue jeans and a bright blue shirt. She is about 5’5″, 115 lbs, has long, dark brown hair and blue eyes. I don’t care if you live in Alabama or Antarctica, please, please just share this post. I have never felt a feeling as horrible as the one I have right now and I have no idea what she’s going through. I just want my mom home where she is loved and belongs.. I’m begging all of you, please help us. I love you, Momma. I’m going to see you soon. – Danny Pate
