The Summit County Search and Rescue Team is combing the Cuyahoga Valley National Park around Boston Mills Road for a missing Eastlake woman.

That car of Hillary Sharma, 30, was found abandoned around midnight Thursday at the Boston Store Visitor Center at 1550 Boston Mills Road, according to Jennie Vasarhelyi, a spokesperson for the park.

"It was found by one of our park rangers," Vasarhelyi said.

Just before the car was found, Eastlake Police notified surrounding departments to be on the lookout for Sharma's car.

After the car was found, a search was started. Several local departments are searching the area and the nearby river.

"The search has expanded with several agencies assisting the national parks," Vasarhelyi said.

There are no leads, she said.

"So we're systematically looking everywhere she could be," Vasarhelyi said.

Sharma is 5'3" and 120 pounds and has brown hair and eyes.

Officials ask that anyone with information on Sharma call the National Parks Service at 440-546-5945.
