Local law enforcement agencies are looking for a missing Wake County woman last seen late last week in Nash County.

Sarah Denise Patterson, 51, of Pinewinds Drive in Raleigh, was last known to be on the 4200 block of Biltmore Lane in Spring Hope.

The reporting party, a family member, indicated Patterson hasn't been seen since Thursday. She didn't report to work Saturday or Sunday.

"The reporting party indicated this was out of character for Sarah Denise Patterson," said Nash County Chief Deputy Brandon Medina.
