A car belonging to a 54-year-old Hampstead woman who has been missing for more than a week was found yesterday by police in Niagara Falls, N.Y..

Maryland State Police said yesterday that Sara Virginia Reed's 1987 Chrysler New Yorker was found abandoned in a snow-covered parking lot on Niagara Falls Boulevard.

"We're sending people up there to try to determine when the car arrived, how long it has been there and if anyone has seen anyone with the car," said Tfc. William Corun. He said Tfc. Jason Merson and Cpl. Mitchell Dinterman went to New York yesterday.

The troopers will be working with Niagara Falls police and the FBI, Trooper Corun said.

"We are also checking the route to see if there have been any 'Jane Does' or any sighting of the vehicle in regard to criminal activity," he said. "At this point, nothing is ruled out."

Mrs. Reed, known to friends and family as Sue, has not been seen since Nov. 9, when she left her Basler Road home to go shopping in Westminster. Family members said she had left a note indicating that she would be at the mall.

Since then, police have been pursuing leads that she had been at the Westminster Rescue Mission on Main Street and at Cranberry Mall.

The retired account representative at AT&T worked occasionally for a relative at Record and Book Heaven on Main Street in Westminster, police said.

Mrs. Reed has shoulder-length brown hair, is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs about 130.

At the time of her disappearance, she was driving the faded, dark-blue Chrysler New Yorker with Maryland license tag SVM 556.

Anyone with information concerning Mrs. Reed's disappearance should contact Trooper Corun at 876-2101 or 848-3111.
