Weldon, N.C. — Authorities continue to search for three missing Halifax County women years after they disappeared.
Amy Wells Bridgeman, 42, went missing in Weldon in June. Jalesa Reynolds, 18, was last seen at the Halifax Memorial Library in February 2010, and Shonda Stansbury, 24, disappeared from Roanoke Rapids in December 2006.
“Now with the winter, with trees dying (and) leaves falling, we can search better than we could before,” said search organizer Kim Wallace.
Among the searchers will be Bridgeman’s husband, James Bridgeman, who says he last saw his wife in the yard of a home on Elm Street.
“(I’m) just hoping that we find her somewhere alive,” he said. “It's six months. It's time for some answers.”
Bridgeman is 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs about 170 pounds and was last seen wearing a white shirt with black stripes and white capri pants.
The Halifax County Sheriff's Office is handling the investigation into Bridgeman's disappearance. They have released very few details about the case, but will be participating in Saturday's search.
“(I’m) just concerned in my heart for the women,” Wallace said. “We do need closure. The family needs something.”
Anyone with information about the cases should call the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office 252-583-8201 or Halifax County Crime Stoppers at 252-583-4444.
