Family asks for help in finding missing Granville County mom

Posted September 22, 2008

— The family of a missing Granville County woman is asking for the public’s help.

Kelly Morris, 28, was last seen the night of Sept. 3 by her husband, Scott Morris, and two children at her home at 3220 Tump Wilkins Road in Stem, according to the Granville County Sheriff’s Office.

During a news conference Monday afternoon, Morris' family urged people to keep an eye out for their missing daughter.

“We know that hunters are in the woods now. We know that land owners may have a perimeter of land that they have not checked in awhile. Anybody who is a four-wheeling person that would ride the paths and take a few extra minutes to look,” said Pat Currin, Morris’ father.

Police found Morris' burgundy, 2005 Honda Accord along with her keys, purse and cell phone in an undeveloped subdivision on Sept. 4, shortly after firefighters responded to a fire at the home.

Investigators said there was no sign that Morris was in the home when it burned. At the time of the fire, Scott Morris was at work and their two children were at school, authorities said. The fire has been classified as arson.

Currin said that he is trying to organize an extensive search for Saturday and Sunday and will be asking volunteers to meet at Old Weaver Trail and Highway 50. Last weekend, about 50 people searched for Morris.

Granville County sheriff's investigators are asking anyone with information about the fire or Morris' disappearance to contact them at 919-693-3213.

    Stem is nice and country! Granville County is a great place to live. I live in Creedmoor and love it. My husband grew up in Stem.
    I just really don't think she would just up and leave her children and family/friends. But that is just my opinion.

    Maybe she just disappeard by choice. If I lived in Stem, I would want to disappear too.

    So the letters on the shirts are purple and there is also a purple ribbon on the shirts. I know the purple ribbon stands for Domestic Violence, but also many other things.
    I saw online it could stand for "Crime Victim Rights"...

    Anyone know?

    Are there any updates on Kelly? Prayers and Thoughts are with all of her family and friends.

    I agree with all of you, I myself would be right in the middle of everything, but everyone is different and handle things in different ways! Scott is quiet and shy, and it is what it is. It doesn't mean he is guilty, it just gives everybody something more to talk about!
