According to a press release from the Tewksbury Police Department, Jacklyn Roche was last seen walking away from her Pleasant Street home at about 6 p.m wearing dark sweatpants, dark colored shoes, and a black hooded sweatshirt.

Roche's cell phone carrier was contacted on Thursday, and determined that the last ping to her phone was received from a cell tower in Marblehead at about 10 p.m. Wednesday night. After that time, however, the phone was shut outt.
