After Searching for Missing Mother, Daughter Gets Call She Prayed For

LITTLE ROCK, AR — A daughter on a mission to locate her mentally ill mother who’d been missing for nearly a week finally got the phone call she was praying for on Sunday.

“I’ve been investigating myself,” said Danyelle Norman.  “I’ve been going around asking people, you know, ‘when was last time you saw my mom?  What was she wearing?'”

When we interviewed Norman early Sunday afternoon, she was waiting for more flyers to be printed so she could continue posting them around town in effort to track down her mother, Dorris Allen, 63.

Employees at a Little Rock gas station told her they’d called her mother a cab but didn’t know where she went.  That was last Tuesday and no one had heard from Allen since.

Norman was terrified, especially since her mother suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and wasn’t taking her medication.

“I’ve barely been sleeping, barely eating,” Norman said.  “I just been praying and trusting God.”

Those who live near Allen and were used to seeing her everyday were worried as well.

“This is very unusual, very concerned about this,” said Jack Williams.

Norman says despite fears, her belief in God kept her going as she walked neighborhoods searching for someone who knew where her mother was.   
She credits that faith for the phone call late Sunday afternoon that’d she’d been praying for.  It was her mother.  She’d been staying in a local hotel because her AC when out and she was hot.
