The Independence County Sheriff’s Office is reporting a missing pregnant woman.

Deputy Bryon Hightower noted in his report that he visited with Lona Corter on Monday, Oct. 18. Corter informed authorities that Lily Lenderman, 21, formerly of Sidney, has not been seen or heard from since Sunday evening.

Lenderman is described as homeless and does not own a phone. Corter said Lenderman usually stays wherever she can and that she had been staying the last few days at a park area in west Batesville known as, “The Rocks.”

Corter also told police that Lenderman is seven months pregnant.

Lenderman may be traveling with Justin French in a brown Chevrolet truck.

Lenderman has been entered into the Arkansas Crime Information Center as a missing person. Authorities did not have a photo of Lenderman to share at this time.

Anyone aware of Lenderman’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Independence County Sheriff’s Department at (870) 793-8838.
