The search continues for a missing Alamogordo woman who went for a walk Sept. 24 and never returned.
David Lynn said his wife, 55-year-old Vicky Lynn, takes medication to battle depression.

“I feel powerless,” David Lynn said about the last 3 1/2 months. “I’ll be honest with you, if there’s something substantial we’re depending on someone else (outside of Alamogordo). I really think we would have found her if she was still in Alamogordo.”

David Lynn coached at Texico High and several other schools while Vicky Lynn is a Farwell native.

Capt. Norbert Sanchez of the Otero County Sheriff’s Department said it’s possible that Vicky Lynn left town on her own.

“We haven’t been able to rule anything out,” Sanchez said. “Her disappearing was unusual. The case is still wide open.”

Despite having few clues to her disappearance, David Lynn said people from Alamogordo and around the country have been supportive and helpful.

Sanchez said missing adult cases are some of the toughest cases to solve.

“The biggest problem is that we ran out of leads,” Sanchez said. “The leads we had haven’t been able to turn up anything.”

Sanchez said he continues to keep in touch with the family in case either he or the family has any leads to follow up on.
“It’s been frustrating for them,” Sanchez said. “It’s understandable. They want to get some closure.”

Vicky Lynn’s photo has been posted on the Internet in hopes someone will recognize her and call the Otero County Sheriff’s Department at 437-2210.

According to the Sheriff’s department release, Vicky Lynn is 5-foot-11 and approximately 145 pounds. She has medium length blonde hair and wears wire frame glasses.
