Arizona woman with Downs syndrome still missing – “Just bring her home”, mom appeals

It’s been nearly two months since 38-year-old Sarah Galloway went missing, but her family continue to be inundated with prayers and messages of support hoping for her safe return.

Sarah, who stands 4 feet 11 inches, and weighs 100Ibs, has brown hair and eyes, which are crossed, while she suffers from Down syndrome.

The 38-year-old’s mother, Sherry, has continued to appeal for her safe return, imploring people to bring her home if they see her. “If you see her, just bring her home. Drop her off, go on, just bring her home safe, that’s all,” Sherry said, according to Kold.

Sherry has always been close with her daughter. She says Sarah used to love talking to herself, and would often pretend to conversations with friends or talk about day to day details.

On March 21 of this year, however, things changed. 66-year-old Sherry settled down on her bed, only to realize that she could no longer hear Sarah talking. She went looking for her daughter, starting with a search of the house, but Sarah had vanished.

“My first thought was that she’d just walked further than she was allowed,” Galloway said. “I got in the car and drove down the road. No Sarah. I was freaking out. … Within about 10 minutes, we’d called 911.”

At the time of her disappearance, Sarah was wearing a grey sweater, a red T-shirt and black pants. The search for her has since continued on foot, and by car and air, but law enforcement professionals have had no luck as of yet.

“She’s a vulnerable adult and we’re doing everything we can to locate her,” said a spokesman of the Pima County. “We’re looking to the public to supply any tips they have.”

On Wednesday, Pima County Sheriff’s Department concluded their search for Sarah, but is still hopeful the public could provide new leads on the case.

Sherry, meanwhile, continues to appeal for her adopted daughter’s safe return.

“She is the most precious thing in the world to our family,” she said. “Every time I open my eyes in the morning I’m thinking about Sarah. Please find her and bring her home. Let us rest.

“I miss having her come and kiss on me in the morning. I miss having her kiss me at night when she’d go to bed.

“She’s super-friendly. No one is a stranger to her. But she needs supervision to care for herself. She cannot operate a cell phone.”

Change in behavior

Furthermore, Sherry explained that Sarah had been acting strange prior to her disappearance.  “It was really weird. She was fantasizing about someone — an acquaintance — being her husband, telling me that this guy was going to do bad things to me. We didn’t know where that was coming from or what to think.”

Of course, it’s our aim to help spread the word about Sarah. She needs to come home, and the more people that know about her, the better.
