Police led 200 volunteers on a search Sunday for clues in the case of a Sun City-area woman who has been missing since Wednesday.

The search of Mahany Park and open spaces in Sun City Roseville turned up several items that police are investigating in relation to the disappearance of Susan Jacobson, Roseville Police spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther said.

The search party included 14 officials from Placer County Search & Rescue, who brought along seven trained search dogs, Gunther said.

Jacobson, 59, was last seen about 6 a.m. Wednesday, when she told her husband she was going grocery shopping and running errands.

Her husband reported her missing when she didn't return home that day, and her vehicle was found in the Raley's parking lot at Woodcreek Oaks and Pleasant Grove boulevards. Her wallet was also found in the same parking lot that morning by a passerby who turned it in.

Detectives found no evidence of foul play, but the investigation is continuing.

"We found some things during the search, but we don't know yet if they're related to Mrs. Jacobson," Gunther said late Sunday. "We haven't ruled out anything at this point. It's still a mystery."
