(Memphis) Family and friends of Karen Denise Thomas searched the wooded areas around the Garden Ridge store off of Summer Tuesday morning.

A car belonging to Thomas was found in the Garden Ridge parking lot Monday morning.

Thomas was last seen Thursday night by her husband Terrence as she was leaving their home in the 2700 block of Welchlawn.

“She’s not going to come back home alive. I don’t know. She’s been gone ever since Thursday.  Denise would have come home, she would’ve called us. Denise would have been home by now,” said Thomas’ sister Renee Shaw.

Several of Karen Thomas’ friends and family followed trails behind the shopping center and looked through brush nearby.

Shaw said they will continue to search each and every day until they find her sister.

They are asking for anyone who can help to meet in the parking lot at Garden Ridge at 8 every mornings.

“For my sister I’m going to go to the last mile,” added Shaw.

Anyone with information about Karen Thomas’ disappearance, they are asked to call MPD at 545-COPS.
