Police found the phone of an Arkansas woman who disappeared while out for an afternoon jog but as of Friday, she still remains missing.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Sydney Sutherland, 25, of Jackson County was last seen jogging near Highway 18 at around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
Jackson County Sheriff David Lucas told Fox 16 News that a UPS driver spotted the woman jogging near County Road 41 on Wednesday. There appear to be conflicting reports about exactly where she was last seen. It is not clear who reported Sutherland missing.
According to the report, Sutherland lives near Highway 18 between Newport and Grubbs with her boyfriend. Police located Sutherland’s phone around a quarter of a mile between her home and Highway 67.

At some point on Wednesday, Sutherland went to a gym in Jonesboro, and investigators are reviewing surveillance video footage from the gym, according to Fox 16 News.
The sheriff reportedly said Sutherland is known to take walks or go jogging in the area where she was last seen.
Along with long enforcement officials and search dogs, numerous friends and community members have been scouring the area for Sutherland.
“Everybody obviously loves her and you can tell by all the people out here looking for her,” friend Felicia Drake told KRAK.
Sutherland was last seen wearing black athletic shorts and a white tank top. She is described as having blonde hair and brown eyes, standing 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighing about 103 pounds.
Anyone who traveled on Highway 67 on Wednesday from around 2 p.m. to 5 pm. or anyone with information about Sutherland’s whereabouts is urged to call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office at 870-523-5842.
