Woman Charged after Sending Her 76 Year-old Mom on Bus to Las Vegas By Herself

November 21, 2011
PORT WENTWORTH, Ga. (WSAV) --
A Port Wentworth woman is charged with elder abuse after police said she sent her mom, who has Alzheimer's and dementia, on a cross-country bus trip by herself.
Port Wentworth Police arrested Audrey Pearson on Friday.
Investigators believe Pearson bought her mother, Marcia Pope, 76, a one way ticket to Las Vegas and let her take the bus from Savannah alone on Wednesday.
Police said Pope requires constant supervision due to her condition.

Pope's other children called police Friday to report her missing after she called them from an unknown area code, said Detective Steven Holmes of Port Wentworth Police.
Detectives immediately found out from Greyhound officials that Pope had made it from Savannah to Atlanta but when the bus arrived in Denver, Colorado, investigators found she was not on the bus as scheduled.
Police said the trip includes several stops and requires changing buses three times.

Investigators then tracked her credit card purchases and found she had used her card at the Greyhound station in Dallas, TX, to buy another ticket to Las Vegas. Port Wentworth Police called Dallas Police, who found Pope safe at the bus station and took her to a hospital.
Pearson was arraigned Monday afternoon.
