PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) - The search continues for a missing Tampa woman last seen in Punta Gorda.

The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office searched Sunday for 27-year-old Ellen Anne Quinlan near a mobile home park where she was last seen Friday afternoon. The waterways in the area were searched by a dive team and deputy. Authorities also are using reverse 911 calls to homes within eight miles of the area where Quinlan was last seen.

One person who saw Quinlan at the mobile home park said he saw her walk out of the water and appeared to be in a confused state of mind.

Her car was found abandoned with the keys inside. Quinlan's purse was also left behind.

She was last seen wearing a red shirt and dark pants.
