Ingram is suspected of suffering from cognitive impairment, the sheriff's office says. Her family is concerned she will not be able to drive due to vision issues in low-light conditions.

Authorities suspect Ingram might be headed to Baldwin, Wisconsin, or Mora, Minnesota. Anyone who sees Ingram or knows of her whereabouts is asked to call 911.
