    Details of Disappearance

    Carlson was last seen in Karlstad, Minnesota at 10:00 a.m. on October 2, 2013. She was driving a black four-door 2001 Mercury Sable with a dent in the passenger side door and the Minnesota license plate number 743-ECY; a photo of the car is posted below this case summary. She may have been en route to Badger, Minnesota or Brainerd, Minnesota. She has never been heard from again and her vehicle hasn't been located. Carlson left behind her belongings, money and five pet dogs. Because of her state of health and because it's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning, authorities are concerned for her safety. Her case remains unsolved.
