The Camden County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the man who beat up a 70-year-old woman in Edwards, Missouri

The 70-year-old woman was supposed to celebrate her birthday with her daughter in Kansas City, but she never showed up.

“She went out to walk her dog, and she came back into the house then walked down stairs….she was confronted by a Male subject who beat her, it’s the last thing she remembers” says  Chief Deputy Jim Brashear with the Camden County Sheriff’s Office.

He tells KRMS News the victim’s daughter called on a neighbor to check on her mother, and he found the woman unconscious “She was then transported to Lake Regional hospital by ambulance and then at that point, based on her injuries, she was life-flighted to University Hospital in Columbia.”

Deputies say she later told them she had never seen the man before.

If you have any information about the attack, you’re urged to call the Camden County Sheriff’s Office right away.
