LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville police are still searching for a Shively woman who disappeared on Sunday, but now there's a $4,000 reward if you can help.

Authorities said 47-year-old Patricia Thompson may be in danger and she has several mental disabilities.

“She's schizophrenic, she has post-traumatic stress disorder, social phobia and mild mental retardation,” said Rhonda Shaver.

Rhonda Shaver is part owner of Blue Sky Case Management, which deals with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. She is Thompson's case worker and has been searching for her with co-workers.

“We're just really scared for her,” Shaver said.

On Thursday, a group met at Thompson's home on Welman Drive in Shively, where she was last seen.

A private company called KYK9 Search and Reunite Services also brought in dogs to look for Thompson. 

So far, there are no answers as to where she may be.

“She doesn't have family and I feel like at this time that the community is her family,” said Shaver.

Thompson was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Shaver says when she's scared or anxious, she runs away. Shaver says Thompson hasn’t done that in several years.

She’s worried Thompson could be hiding somewhere and needing help.

“I am asking that everyone just check their garages, up under decks,” said Shaver.

With the community's help, Shaver is hoping the search will come to an end.

“I just hope and pray that everyone really stops to take a look and hopefully we can find her,” said Shaver.

Blue Sky Case Management is offering a $4,000 reward to help find Thompson.

Anyone with information on where she is can call Metro Police at 574-LMPD.
