Reporting Monique Griego
STEVENSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — Gone without a trace. The search for a missing mother of two in Stevensville continues. Volunteers and law enforcement are both trying to find any leads.
Monique Griego has more on this mysterious case.
Maryland State Police have been working non-stop to find Robin Pope. They’ve searched wooded areas and even sent divers in the waters off Kent Island but so far, nothing has popped up. Police are now calling her disappearance suspicious.
It’s been nine days since Robin Pope, 51, vanished from her home in Stevensville.
“It’s just bizarre because she contacts us so much. This is very unusual. It’s not like her,” said her daughter, Rachael Pope.
As her daughters cling to hope she’ll be found safe, Maryland State Police are desperately searching for clues.
“It remains a mystery at this point but our investigators are still determined to find where she is and what happened to her,” said Greg Shipley, Maryland State Police.
Pope was last seen by her estranged husband. He told police she came home to grab a few items. He left and returned the next morning to find her missing.
“Certainly, she disappeared under suspicious circumstances,” Shipley said. “The fact that her personal items were found in her car.”
Sunday, more than 200 community members and police gathered for a search of Kent Island. Volunteers went door to door and searched high and low for any evidence that might help investigators.
“It’s very close to home. I would want someone to be out here if one of my family members were missing,” said volunteer Tae Cha.
Searchers found clothing and a few other items but nothing definite.
Pope’s loved ones aren’t giving up hope.
“We would not stop because she never would. We’re not giving up,” Pope’s daughters said. “Not going to happen.”
Police are still analyzing some of the items volunteers found but so far haven’t been able to link any to Pope’s disappearance.
