Police have asked for the public’s help finding a missing 60-year-old Nashville woman.

Authorities said 60-year-old Wanda Faye Walker was last seen on October 5 at a home in the 1400 block of 11th Avenue South. Reports stated she lived there with her cousin.

On that day, Walker failed to report to work at the Dollar Tree store on Franklin Pike. According to her family, they have not heard from her since.

"My auntie had called me, and she was like, 'I don't want to mess you up before you go to work, but we haven't seen your Granny for a few days.' And I'm like, 'Don't tell me this is happening again,'" said Rayvon Walker.
Rayvon Walker was just 2 years old the day his mother LaResha Walker disappeared. Seventeen years later, there has still been no sign of Walker. Now his grandmother has also gone missing and has not been seen since October 5.
"That's the first thing that came to my mind is this happening again to our family," said Rayvon Walker.

Police said they found Walker’s Nissan Maxima locked outside of a home in the 1000 block of Wade Avenue on October 13.

According to those in that area, the vehicle had been there for about a week, but no one reported seeing Walker.

"We're coming, I'm letting everybody know. We're coming. We're coming in the neighborhood all over in the neighborhood. We're going to try and find out some more information," said Rochelle Charleston, Wanda Walker's sister.

Friends and family said this was not like Walker, and they added they have hope she will come home safely.

"Wanda if you're out there and you can't talk or if someone is holding you, we're coming for you," said Rochelle Walker.

Anyone with information on Walker’s whereabouts has been urged to contact police at 615-862-7329.
