Durham woman still missing after a week

Posted December 16, 2011

— Friday marks one week since Margaret A. Lewis, of Revere Road in Durham, went missing, and police are still seeking information about where she is.

Neighbors say the 58-year-old is a widow and lived alone. Those who know her say she recently moved from one part of Durham to another.

Police found her car abandoned near Parkwood Lake on Monday, near her new home.

Authorities have not released any more details about the case, other than to say they're concerned for her well-being. Lewis is 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs about 95 pounds and has black hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 919-560-4440, extension 29332, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

    I'm also bothered. It's now been TWO weeks and there's no more news. I'm wondering when and how we can can an update. Have the media and authorities forgotten about her? Does the squeeky wheel of her family and friends need to be louder so that she can get the attention she deserves from them? Peg, you're in my thoughts.

    I am a bit bothered by the similarities in this missing person case and the woman from Hope Mills, NC. Both are middle-aged widows, living alone, with their cars found somewhat near their residences. Strange, but I would investigate the possibility of more than coincidence? This gives me chills... I pray she is well and found safe!
