PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) -
67 year old, Lana S. Sears was found dead in a residence at the 1300 block Marl Bank Drive in the Beechwood Manor neighborhood in Prince George County.
Police say they got the call at 3:45 p.m. Friday after the daughter of the victim--who also lived in the home--found the body.
Investigators are searching the area for 42-year-old Alana Renee Cole, who is considered a person of interest in this investigation. Chief of Police Ed Frankenstein says Cole lives in the neighborhood.
Police patrols, investigators and K-9 units have been canvassing the area all day, hoping to find clues that will lead them to Cole.
"Many people are familiar with the individual, but we wanted to see if anyone saw her or knows where she is," said Chief Frankenstein.
Anyone with information about this case or Alana Cole's whereabouts is urged to call Crime Solvers at (804) 733-2777 or text "igotcha" to 274637 (CRIMES).
