Search Fails To Turn Up Signs Of Missing Kinston Woman, Granddaughter

— After another day of searching, authorities did not find any signs of a missing Kinston woman and her granddaughter.

Gail Haddock-Dail and Heather Lynn Roberts were last heard from on Dec. 7. That is when Haddock-Dail's estranged husband, Glenn, said he got a frantic call from her saying her car was in the water and she and Roberts were drowning.

Sections of the Neuse River were searched using side-scanning sonar. The search included the Neuse River near the Nature Center off of Heritage and the King Street Bridge.

A large pond located near Caswell Street and Earl Tyndall Road was also dragged.

A cadaver dog was also used in the search.

Investigators had stopped all searches a week ago after they said they had exhausted all leads.

Authorities said Glenn Dail is not considered a suspect, but his attorney claims his client is being treated as one. Dail's attorney said his client does not have anything to do with the disappearance of the two women.

Investigators may decide to continue their search Thursday.
