Friends try to solve mystery of missing Raleigh mom
Posted September 22, 2012
Raleigh, N.C. — Friends and family held a candelit vigil Saturday to ask for people to come forward with clues in the mysterious disappearance of a Raleigh mother two years ago.
Terry Pendergraft Tersak, 33, disappeared while traveling from Asheville to Raleigh on June 1, 2009. She never showed up as expected.
Authorities in Asheville have been looking for leads since Tersak's disappearance, but have come up empty so far and need the public's help to solve the case.
"They need to know that she heard from you or you heard from her. It doesn't matter what time frame it is. It is important," Tersak's friend, Barbara Yelvington, said. "The smallest thing you might think is not important could break this whole case open and tell us where she's at."
Tersak left behind her husband, Stefan, and her son, Xander.
Stefan Tersak has told investigators that his wife abandoned the family, and he does not know where she went.
