Posted 5:27 p.m. Monday

— North Carolina police are searching for two women reported missing, one of whom hasn't been seen since March.

A report from the Winston-Salem Police Department on Monday said 36-year-old Kristen Heath Gibson called her family on July 13 and told them she was making arrangements to get a ride to her home in Elkin after being discharged from Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem. The family hasn't heard from her or seen her since that call.

Elkin is 44 miles (70 kilometers) northwest of Winston-Salem.

Winston-Salem police are also looking for 62-year-old Mary Magdalene Smith, who was last seen near a motel in early March. Officers found a red book bag believed to be Smith's in a vacant lot during a search on Monday, but no sign of the woman.
