The Albany County Sheriff's Department has searched the area with a cadaver dog and a drone with a thermal imaging camera looking for the woman.

They're even more concerned because the car was left on the tracks before the storm that left almost two-feet of snow.

Authorities describe Trombley as a well-respected retired nurse.

She was moving from Voorheesville to Lee, Massachusetts, Saturday night, and was supposed to follow her son's car in her car. He made it to Lee, but it appears she did not.

He reported her missing to police in Lee, and later brought the case to the Albany County Sheriff's Department.

Amtrak reported to Colonie Police that there was a car on the CSX tracks.  The car that came back to Trombley.

She is described as 5 feet, 8 inches, 120 pounds, last seen wearing a red coat and black pants. Authorities say she doesn't have any known medical or mental issues.

Investigators believe the car had been at West Albany pocket Park since at least Sunday morning, before the snow.

Anyone with information is asked to call Colonie Police at (518) 783-2744 or the Albany County Sheriff's Department at (518) 783-2744.
