  • Independence Police are looking for Ms. Joanne C. Eakin, 78 years old, 5’ 8” tall, 108 lbs, dark brown (dyed) hair, and brown eyes.
    On Saturday, Eakin left her Independence home at approximately 9:30 a.m. and was last seen leaving Harrah’s Casino at 1:30 p.m. Family members said she was expected to arrive at a residence in the 9500 block of W. 148th Terrace in Overland Park, Kan, at 2 p.m. It is believed  Eakin exited the casino alone and was driving her black, 1996 Mercury Marquis four door with a cloth top, bearing Missouri license plates CD3-SOR.
    Eakin was last seen wearing a pink scarf, black coat, white or light gray shirt, blue jeans, and carrying a black purse.
    Family members said she has gotten lost on two occasions because she got off of the interstate and became confused, and she cannot drive after dark because she does not see well at night.
    If anyone has seen Joanne Eakin, knows where she may be, or has seen her car, please call 911, the TIPS Hotline at 474-8477, or the Independence Police Department at 816-836-3600.
