FLUVANNA, Co. --  The Fluvanna County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the disappearance of 49-year-old Janet Renee Field of Hickory Hill Road in Scottsville.

Officials say Field was last seen on Wednesday, July 2, by her husband at their home.

Her husband, Lewis Field, spoke off camera saying that she left their house in Scottsville early in the afternoon and didn't return that evening. He also didn't know where she was going.

Fluvanna County Sheriffs held a press conference on Friday to give more details in her disappearance and say that at this point they don't suspect foul play.

Field is described as a white female, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds.  She has blonde hair and blue eyes.

At this point they don't have a clothing description, but they did find her 2010 burgundy Subaru Forrester with the license plate WNP259 at the Park and Ride lot at Zion crossroads on July 4.

Authorities say she may have ties to the Richmond area, but at this point they are hoping someone can give them information that can bring her back home.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Fluvanna Co. Sheriff's Office at 434-589-8211.

    that’s what I am wondering too @Paula. They usually suspect the spouse has something to do with their disappearance as the number one possible suspect since they are more likely the last one that was last known to be with them but they haven’t mentioned if they suspect foul play or anything. I hope that wherever she is that she will be found safe.

    I hope she is ok. But this is not the first time she has gone missing. She is seeing a man in Short pump.

      we will take any leads and information that we can get. If you have information, you should report it to the police or even contact me thru facebook. If you have FACTS of this information, then please share it. If she is seeing a man in Short Pump….so be it, we could care less. We just need to know that she is alive and well. Please give our family an answer. Renee is my cousin and we want to know that she is safe.

    It is really easy to post things about someone who is not present to dispute it. If anyone really has legitimate information, and not just gossip, please call the police. If not, please stop the defamation.

    This is so distressing to not have any new information on Renee’s whereabouts… I pray so much that she is OK…
