Mercer County woman still missing a year after disappearance

PRINCETON — A moment of silence has been scheduled Wednesday for a woman who disappeared a year ago this week after walking away from a local mental health center.

Barbara Thomason was 63 when she walked away from the Southern Highlands Community Mental Health Center in Princeton on Sept. 26, 2011. An extensive search was conducted, but she has not been found.

There will be a moment of silence for Thomason at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, said Judy Akers, executive director at Southern Highlands.

“We continue to look,” Akers said today. “We have not given up hope.”
