The family of a Tooele woman missing since Wednesday is asking for help.
Jane Ashby, 62, left her Tooele home to drive to work at the Utah Farm Bureau offices in Sandy but never showed up, said Matt Hargreaves of the Farm Bureau.
Just days ago, Ashby fell down some stairs in her home and has an injured ankle and two stitches in her cheek, her daughter Michelle Graves said.
"She also hit her sternum hard, and we're concerned about her heart," Hargreaves said. "It is possible that she has become disoriented or otherwise. Jane's family, our staff and others have been looking for her. She was driving a 2011 red Ford Escape."
Ashby left to go to work on Wednesday, taking her purse, identification and laptop as usual, said Graves, who filed a missing person's report at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
"She never came home last night," Graves said. "We've tried to call and call and no answer. I'm in contact with everybody she could be staying with. She didn't pack anything."
Police pinged Ashby's cell phone and have been able to confirm that the phone is somewhere in the Draper area.
Ashby's husband died in December and Ashby may be dealing with some depression after the death of her husband, Graves said.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Utah Farm Bureau at (801) 233-3000.
