Family of missing woman appeals to public on her birthday

A woman missing from north Caddo Parish should be celebrating her 41st birthday today. Instead, Caddo deputies are continuing their search for her.

Dorothy “Dottie” Yates-McCathran has been missing since January 21. She was last seen at her residence in the 10000 block of Vivian Airport Road on January 21.

Numerous searches of her property as well as an on-going investigation by the Caddo Sheriff’s Office have turned up no significant leads so far, said Sheriff’s Det. Matt Purgerson. Recently, McCathran’s family offered a reward of up to $20,000 in connection with the case.

McCathran is a white female, 5’3, 110 pounds, with brown eyes and short brown hair. She is the mother of two children.

Anyone with information about her location is asked to contact Det. Purgerson at 675-2170 or call Caddo-Shreveport Crime Stoppers at 673-7373.
