VERO BEACH – Police are still searching for Susy Tomassi who disappeared from The Quilted Giraffe about a month ago in Vero Beach.
Detectives from the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office are now following up on leads in Brevard County, where sightings have been reported at Wickham Park.
Some witnesses told investigators that Tomassi, 73, was seen wandering in the park and other places in Melbourne. They said she was in the company of the homeless.
Volunteers and authorities in Indian River County conducted several searches of the wooded Oslo Preserve area near The Quilted Giraffe restaurant, which is owned by Tomassi and her husband.
Tomassi’s family initially offered a $5,000 reward for the woman’s safe recovery, but later increased it to $10,000.
