An elderly woman has been missing since Friday afternoon, after arriving from Reagan National Airport on a flight from Barbados. Relatives and friends of 83-year-old Victoria Kong have been searching throughout the weekend for the woman.
Kong was last seen 6:30 p.m. Friday, walking north along the Mount Vernon Trail toward Gravelly Point.
Police Chief Steven Holl with the Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority says the search has been extensive so far. According to Holl, a tracking dog from Fairfax County tracked Kong from the Gravelly Point area to Teddy Roosevelt Island.
"We had about 25 officers search the area," says Holl. "In addition, we provided a couple hundred fliers to the people who had walked the island and on the bike trail. We also had a couple of dog teams from Dogs-East come in, which is a voluntary search and rescue unit."
Holl says the search will continue today with additional volunteers.
Anyone who has seen Kong or has any information on her whereabouts should contact MWAA Police at 703-417-2400 or 202-615-9898.
