CHELSEA — The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office needs the public’s help in trying to locate a missing Chelsea resident.


Carrie Elaine Gentry, a 64-year-old woman, has been missing since 7 p.m. March 28. She is described as 5-foot-8-inches tall, approximately 185 pounds with brown hair and green eyes.

Gentry has no known medical issues that would explain her disappearance and her friends and family state this is very uncharacteristic, according to a Shelby County Sheriff’s Department press release. She is a local pastor at St. Peter’s Anglican Church on Montevallo Road in Birmingham.

Gentry’s vehicle is also missing. It is a silver 2002 Lexus RX300 with Alabama tag number 58G19T1.

Anyone with information about Gentry or her whereabouts is urged to contact the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office directly at 669-4181, through the Secret Witness line at 669-9116 or through our website at
