Missing Hope Mills woman's SUV, cellphone found

Posted December 5, 2011

— Cumberland County investigators on Sunday found an abandoned SUV belonging to a missing Hope Mills woman.

Edwardyne "Dynee" Williams, 50, of Canady Pond Road, was last seen by family members on Nov. 27, authorities said.

Her white Isuzu Rodeo was found along Chicken Foot Road in Cumberland County, about a mile or two from her home. Her purse was found hanging on a nearby tree, and her house keys and cellphone were in the vehicle, said her brother, Robert Kreel. The key to the Rodeo was missing.

"Dynee was not a small girl. She was a scrapper," Kreel said, adding that her family suspects foul play.

Williams' husband died Dec. 18, 2010, but Kreel said family members hadn't noted any signs of depression in her in connection with the upcoming anniversary.

She is described as white, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and 180 pounds, She has long, dark blond hair, hazel eyes and wears glasses.

Anyone who knows of Williams’ whereabouts is asked to call the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 910-323-1500.

    big carl- when I go on alone walks to get my stuff together, I don't leave my purse hanging in a tree, and my car on the side of the road with my phone and keys in it.

    Crazee851- her car was found Sunday night. Shes been missing for a week though. And you right I think this is very suspicious!

    I have been a friend of this family since "96" and her daughter is correct on the hair color. I also agree that she was very depressed. Her vehicle was found a week ago today. Her disappearnce is highly suspicious and I've contacted the detectives office on sunday to offer assistance, since my wife and Dynee were at a concert togather and they talked the sunday before her dissapearance. I am praying hard for the safe return of my friend and peace for the family, especially the girls. In the span of a year they have lost their parents. To the Williams family we love you and offer our support.
