Sister of missing Baker County woman stepping in to help

The search continues for a missing former corrections officer in Baker County.

LAKE CITY, Fla. -- Multiple agencies are searching for a 56-year-old missing woman whose abandoned vehicle was recently found just south of Lake City, authorities said.

Sharon "Sheree" Jackson, 56, was last heard from June 21, according to the Baker County Sheriff's Office. Her vehicle, a black 2010 Chevrolet Equinox, was recently found on State Road 47 near Harmony Lane in Columbia County, deputies said.

Columbia County Sheriff's Office found Jackson's black SUV unoccupied on June 22 on SR 47 at Harmony Lane. CCSO released a photo of the SUV on Wednesday.

"Total devastation, I feel like one of my children are missing," said Cathy Hooper, Jackson's older sister.

Hooper spent Monday making flyers that she's planning to hang near the area where her sister's car was found. She tells First Coast News it's not like Jackson to leave without telling anyone. That's why she says she knows something is wrong.

"I feel like it has to be foul play," she said. "For her to be gone this long, there's nothing she could have done herself," she added.

Deputies from Columbia and Baker Counties say they're still searching, and despite interviews and tips, aren't any closer to figuring out where Jackson is or what happened.

"It's probably the worst stress and deepest concern that a person has to go through," said Hooper.

Jackson, a former corrections officer, is described as 5-foot-3 and 130 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes. If you have seen her, please call the Baker County Sheriff's Office: (904) 259-2861.
