Investigators Continue to Search for Missing Halifax Co. Woman

Campbell Co., VA - It's been nearly one year since a Halifax County woman was reported missing.

Wendy Beadles Francis was last seen in Campbell County on June 15, 2012. Her family reported her missing more than one year ago to the day.

Her family says they need lots of help to bring some closure to Francis' family.

Officials with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office say the 36-year-old was last seen at a house on Mattox Street in the town of Brookneal. They say she was staying with a man, but they will not release the nature of that relationship.

Officials did however, search the home back in February and took some evidence out. The evidence is currently waiting to be processed at a Roanoke forensics lab.

Officials will not confirm whether they believe the disappearance is a homicide or not, but they do say that no one has heard from her in more than a year, which is not like Francis.

"We continue with the hope that she would be found and be found safe but the more time that passes by, the hopes of that happening diminish," said Inv. Brandon Epperson, and Investigator with the Campbell County Sheriff's Office.
