NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Officers with the Miami-Dade Police Department took to the streets on Wednesday morning seeking information regarding a woman who went missing.
Sixty-year-old Caroline Norris was last seen at her residence along the 1100 block of Northwest 103rd Street on Sept. 11.
According to detectives, she told her family she was going to walk to a convenience store but was not seen or heard from since.
“This month has been devastating,” Norris’s daughter Emetrail said. “I haven’t slept more than two hours because I’m always jumping up.”
For the last month, the Norris family has been answering every phone call and knock on the door hoping it would be their mother and sister coming home.
“This is totally out of her character,” daughter Kimahyer said. “Never has she ever done this before.”
Norris stopped by her sister Clara Bell Johnson’s house at around 4 p.m., visited for a while and said she was going to take a walk down the street to the Carmen Market convenience store. It’s unclear if she ever made it there.
“She said, ‘I need my cart.’ I give her the cart, a pushing cart,” Johnson said. “She’s pushing the cart because she can’t barely see that good. I said, ‘OK, you come right back.’ She said, ‘I’ll be back,’ and she never came back.”
There has been no trace of Norris since. Miami-Dade Police detectives met with the Norris family and went door to door in the neighborhood, passing out flyers and looking for any piece of information that can help in their search.
“We’ve done the investigative portion of this, and we’ve come up empty-handed,” Miami-Dade Police detective Lee Cowart said.
Norris’s daughters and sister describe her as friendly, loving and honest. They said she was happy the last time they saw her and that they’ve been crying every night.
“My mom means everything to me. That’s my mom!” Kimahyer said as she cried. “You only get one mom!”
“Please, Caroline, if you can hear me. This is your sister, and you know I love you. I’m hopeful and I’m hopeful every day. I hope someone can give her back to us. Give her back to us.” Johnson pleaded.
Norris uses a red and black walker and was last seen wearing a burgundy dress and a long, black wig.
She stands 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighs 160 pounds, has gray eyes and is said to have trouble with her vision.
Police urge anyone with information on Norris’ whereabouts to call Miami-Dade Police at 305-715-3300. They may also call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
