 OKMULGEE, Okla- The search continues for a missing Okmulgee woman with autism.


Family members say 20-year-old Rose Timperley was last seen on Tuesday at a group home she was staying at.


She was last seen wearing a grey t-shirt, pink pajama pants, tall tan boots, and possibly wearing a black jacket.


Family members along with search group bridging the gap went door to door today talking to neighbors and passing out flyers.


Volunteer Joe Berryman says they believe she's in danger.


 “The girl needs to be found. I mean, that's what we do. Anytime someone comes up missing with no sign or being heard from for a couple of days, people start to worry”, said Berryman


The Timperleys fear her developmental disabilities may have made her a target for crime. 


They say she needs 24-hour care, and they're worried how she's coping without her medication. 


Rose's father, John says finding her would make their family whole again.


 “Love your children, do the best you can for them. You just don't know. Tomorrow's not guaranteed.” said Timperley.


If you have any information on her whereabouts, you're asked to call Okmulgee police.
