PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office is asking the public if they have seen a 58-year-old Port Charlotte woman who has been reported as a missing and endangered adult. Nona Lee Cortese, of 137 Sinclair Street, was last seen walking away from her home last Thursday around 6:30 p.m.

At that time, she was wearing khaki pants and a black and white tee shirt, she is 5’5” tall, 160 pounds, brown hair and brown eyes. Her parents said she has no transportation and only took her purse with her. Cortese reportedly has health problems and may not be able to care for herself.

The family notified CCSO the next day after searching and failing to locate her; a BOLO was then issued to law enforcement agencies.

If anyone has seen or has any information concerning the whereabouts of Nona Lee Cortese, please call the CCSO at 941-639-2101.
