MARINETTE COUNTY (NBC 26) -- Authorities are organizing a new search for a woman missing since 2017.

The Wagner Fire Department says new evidence has been discovered in the case of Jeannette Fullerton. Fullerton was last seen at her home on Four Lakes Road in the Town of Wagner in August 2017.

The Wagner Fire Department says it has a new area officials would like to search. The department is working with the Marinette County Sheriff’s Office in the search and is also asking for volunteers.

The Marinette County Sheriff said a man who owns a cabin in the area checked a camera he had placed on his property and found video that showed Jeanette Fullerton in the area the morning she disappeared. The man hadn't checked the camera's SD card for three years, the sheriff said.

Volunteers are requested to wear proper walking and search attire. Food and drinks will be provided. The search will take place next Sunday morning at 8:30 at N10603 Schultz Road.

Fullerton, who also goes by Jean, has dementia. She's described as 4'10 with gray shoulder length hair. She was last seen wearing a pink and white shirt and pink pants.
