Authorities are seeking tips from the public in their search for a woman last seen on the Iron Range eight months ago.
Tori Jean Grace Bess, 36, had been staying in an Eveleth man's home but left in February. The homeowner reported that Bess abruptly left the home without her belongings, but two days later the homeowner found his front door open and Bess' belongings removed.
The Eveleth Police Department says Bess had medical issues and they are concerned for her well-being and safety. They believe she had contact with other people in the area in the days surrounding her departure.
Authorities say Bess had been on the Iron Range for about three months prior to her departure and that she had expressed a desire to return to a warmer climate. She had previously lived in California, Oregon, and Arizona.
Bess is white, 5'10" tall, weighs 150 pounds, and has green eyes.
Anyone with information on Bess is asked to call the Eveleth Police Department at 218-744-7560.
