Authorities used an airboat Sunday morning on a canal alongside U.S. 92 to try to find Shriver.

Members of the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Air 1 and VCSO K-9, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Division of Forestry have all been searching.

Shriver was last seen wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans. She is between 5 feet and 5 feet 2 inches tall. Deputies said she could be experiencing hearing impairment.

Anyone with information about Shriver's whereabouts is asked to call 911.
