Search continues for missing woman; family offering $10,000 reward for information leading to her return

The search for a missing woman in Racine County is in its third day. The family of 59-year-old Lynn Rickard is now offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to her return.

Rickard was last seen leaving her home on Sunday morning. A lieutenant says they want to make sure that they're not missing anything. Since the area, they are searching is mainly farm and Woodland, they are asking for help from those who own land nearby to check around their perimeter and even check in small hiding places as well.

The family believes because of Lynn Rickard's mental illness, she could be skittish. They are asking for everyone's help to bring her some safely. 

"She's probably scared to come out because she's naked or she's unconscious of no oxygen. I don't know. I love her and miss her very much," her husband John Rickard said.

Several departments have been brought into to assist the Racine Sheriff's Department as well as search dogs and drones.

The family released a statement Tuesday afternoon,

On behalf of the family of Lynn, we greatly appreciate the efforts from everyone in the community involved for her safe return, whether it be directly with search or the support of the family. Lynn is missed and we remain hopeful for her safe return, but she needs your help. The authorities are doing an outstanding job and we are forever indebted, but there have been few signs to assist them. We continue to ask the public to remain vigilant in looking for Lynn or signs of her on their own properties and during their daily routines, as well as talking with neighbors. We hope with the added reward for information leading to her whereabouts, this will only keep Lynn's disappearance fresh on people's minds so she can get home to us safely.
