— Teams continued to search on Tuesday for a missing Granville County mother, family members said.

Dive teams searched around Granville County bridges Tuesday morning but did not find anything, family member Pat Currin said.

Currin’s daughter, Kelly Morris, 28, was last seen on the night of Sept. 3 by her husband, Scott, and children at their home at 3220 Tump Wilkins Road in Stem.

The next day, authorities found her car and personal belongings in an undeveloped subdivision about a mile from the home, shortly after firefighters responded to a fire at the residence.

Investigators believe the fire was set and do not believe Morris was at home at the time.

Investigators have asked for bank statements, canceled checks, deposit slips and all other documents pertaining to accounts at BB&T and RBC Bank for the Morrises and for Scott Morris' business, Scott's Towing, according to search warrants released last week.

Authorities have not named any suspects, but have said Scott Morris is what they call a person of interest in Kelly Morris' disappearance.

Volunteers and authorities have conducted numerous searches for Kelly Morris and will continue this weekend in a five-mile radius in Creedmoor. Volunteers found a gasoline can in a swampy area in Creedmoor that authorities said might have come from the Morris home.

Kelly Morris’ family is offering a $30,000 reward for information that leads to finding her.

Family members say they will not stop searching and urge anyone with any information to contact Granville County sheriff's investigators at 919-693-3213 or a volunteer search line at 919-812-2310.

    Not a nice comment. It show how ignorant you are to think you can do that hideous crime and get away with it. They would give you the death penalty, my friend. I feel safe already knowing, I am here and you are wherever. :) Plus you do not have no earthly idea who I am. lol

    WRAL - How come you keep approving Dr. Dataclerk's comments? Do you feel sorry for him since he must be a lonely old man with nothing to do and no one to talk to.

    WRAL, thank you so much for bringing my comments to the public eye. I try to follow the rules and yet there are times my comments are not made public. Sometimes I just revise my comments and it will come forward. You have to follow the rules that WRAL set forth. You have to show RESPECT to others on board and NOT OFFEND. The rules are here on board, so I suggest you read the rules and follow before posting your comments. I am Dr. Dataclerk and I approve this comment. :)

    I guess if Dr. Dataclerk was a missing person and was probaly stabbed to death hanging on a tree limb dead, He wouldnt be making smart comments on others people true life stories. Obviously you reading about crimes is sureal to you. Im guessing you are a shrink or just makes you feel better calling yourself a Doctor.

    Looks like Dataclerk is on every crime page there is. Someone has an obsession for crime. Anyone else find this ODD?

    You think. lol lol I love true crime stories and read the books all the time. I used to work for a medical examers and I learn quite a bit then. My favorite author is Ann Ann Rule. I am beginning to think here that the husband did it. How he dispose of evidence, is beyond me. Sooner than later the whole truth will prevail. My prayers are too with this family on their missing daughter. I am also praying for Scott and his children. My prayers are for all missing ladies and children all over the United States. I hope you will do the same.
