Lisa Prescott was last seen on August 31, 2018 at her home in Griffin Park which is located in Jonesboro, Arkansas. According to those who saw Lisa before she disappeared, it was around 6:00 PM that evening when she was spotted watching TV in her bedroom, already in her pajamas for the evening. This indicated to her niece, who was at her home at the time, that her aunt was staying in for the evening.
Lisa was experiencing some severe health problems and it is said that she would not have been able to walk 100 yards by herself. Because of these health issues, Lisa’s sister-in-law came over to check on her the following morning. When she arrived, she noticed that Lisa’s door was unlocked and that her dog had been wandering around the house unattended. This was something that was very unusual behavior for Lisa. She never left her house unlocked and, if she wasn’t home, her dog would be crated. While searching through the house Lisa’s medication, phone, keys and purse were located, but no sign of Lisa.
