#Missing: Deborah Walker-Lusk, 66 - Memphis, TENNESSEE (car found abandoned in a Walgreens parking lot)

Deborah Walker-Lusk's family has been searching for her since she went missing September 20.
Walker-Lusk is 66 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall, around 140 pounds and has black hair. Her family thinks she was wearing it in a ponytail. She does not have any known medical conditions.
11 days since she went missing Walker-Lusk's husband, Jeffery D. Lusk is holding it together the best he can as he and his family continue to search for her.
"It's just bizarre. It's just not like my wife at all. I don't understand," said Lusk.
Lusk said he came home last Sunday and thought his wife was shopping for an upcoming trip to see family, but then he felt something wasn't right.
"She'll price compare you know she'll get the best deal, but it just got to a certain point that she was gone too long. I had to call the Sheriff," said Lusk.
Two days later, Deborah's red 1997 Hyundai Accent was found backed into the Walgreens lot near Hacks Cross Road and Shelby Drive. Her family said it was a parking job she normally wouldn't do. Her husband said detectives checked surveillance video from the pharmacy and there was no sign she ever walked into the store.
"She's my rock. If I need to lean on anybody if I need to talk to anyone about something that's who I talk to," said Deborah's son Jeffery R. Lusk.
He got the news his mother was missing last Monday and drove from Chicago to Memphis the next day. 
Relatives have come together in Memphis to search for Deborah together. They say faith and hope have been their source of strength, and they are hoping people can relate and help find Deborah.
"I love her. I'm her baby boy. I don't want this. I don't want to have to hold onto memories. Help bring my mother home," said Deborah's son as he held a picture of the two together.
The Shelby County Sheriff's Office said this case is unusual, and at this time they do not suspect foul play.
The family organized a candlelight vigil this Friday at 7:00 p.m. at the Cornerstone Institutional Baptist Church. 

They also scheduled a mass search for this Saturday at 10:00 a.m. starting at the Cornerstone Institutional Baptist Church. They are asking people to wear a red shirt.
