A 35-year-old Nathalie woman has been missing for two months now, and the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is hoping the public can aid in its search for Wendy Dawn Beadles Francis.

According to Captain S. M. Cassada, Francis was last seen in June by her father, Kenneth Beadles, at the home they shared on Brad Smith Trail in Nathalie.

Francis is a white female, born Nov. 20,1976. She is five-foot four-inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. Cassada noted that she currently has brown hair and blues eyes. A tattoo of a scorpion can be found on the back of her neck, Cassada said.

“Francis isn’t wanted on any charges and does not have any medical conditions,” he added.

Authorities have no reason to think there is any foul play involved, Cassada said. 

However, he added, Francis is known to drift from time to time.

“But this is the longest she has ever been gone,” he said.

Authorities have checked with several of Francis’s acquaintances, according to Cassada, who said police have reason to believe Francis may be in North Carolina with acquaintances.

Anyone with information concerning Francis’ whereabouts is asked to contact the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 434-476-4273.

Investigators search Campbell County for missing woman

Wendy Dawn Beadles Francis

In the search for a missing Halifax County woman, investigators have turned their sights on Brookneal.

Wendy Dawn Beadles Francis was last seen by her father Kenneth Beadles on June 8 at the home they shared on Brad Smith Trail in Nathalie.

The 35-year-old woman was not reported missing until early August.

Halifax Sheriff Fred Clark said Francis frequently would go missing for a week or two while she worked in North Carolina.

But this summer, she left and never returned. One of Francis’s friends, with whom she spoke daily, hasn’t heard from her either, Clark said.

Now investigators believe that foul play may be involved in Francis’ disappearance.

After some digging, investigators learned Francis had friends in Brookneal and may have stayed there a few nights after she left home, the sheriff said.

Investigators hoped those friends might be able to help locate her, but the trail has run cold.

“It’s like she just vanished,” Clark said.

Since authorities last placed the woman in Brookneal, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office has joined the search. Maj. L. T. Guthrie said the office has assigned its own deputy to help investigate the case.

Clark said Francis isn’t wanted on any charges and does not have any known medical conditions.

She was found guilty of possession of marijuana in Halifax County in May, according to court records, but her 30-day jail sentence was suspended. The judge also suspended her license for six months.

With their leads exhausted, authorities are asking for help finding the missing woman.

She is described as 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds with brown hair, blue eyes and a scorpion tattoo on the back of her neck.

She may have relatives in the Naruna area, Guthrie said. Investigators do not think she had a significant other, Clark added.

With so many questions and few answers, it’s difficult for investigators to speculate on what happened.

“Foul play may be expected,” Clark said.

Foul play possible in missing woman case

Posted: Thursday, October 25, 2012 11:06 am

Authorities in Halifax and Campbell counties now say they have reason to believe foul play may have been involved in the disappearance of Wendy Dawn Beadles Francis of Nathalie after deputies were able to track her last known whereabouts to the Brookneal area.

Francis was last seen at her father’s house on Brad Smith Trail in Nathalie in June, but authorities say they have discovered Francis was seen in Brookneal shortly after leaving her father’s house, Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark said.

Francis had friends in Brookneal and may have stayed there after she left home, according to Clark.

Campbell County Sheriff’s Office Maj. L. T. Guthrie said no reasonable explanation exists for Francis’ disappearance.
Guthrie said Francis had been known to disappear weeks at time before contacting relatives, but this time she hasn’t done that.

At this time, Clark said the sheriff’s office is diligently working to locate Francis, but hasn’t had any concrete leads.
Clark and Guthrie are both hoping someone will come forward with the information they need to locate Francis.
Francis, 35, is a white female, born Nov. 20, 1976. She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds.

Capt. Steve Cassada of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said when last seen, she had brown hair and blue eyes.

A tattoo of a scorpion can be found on the back of her neck, Cassada said.

“Francis isn’t wanted on any charges and does not have any medical conditions,” he added.

Anyone with information concerning Francis’ whereabouts is asked to contact the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 434-476-4273.

Search ongoing for missing woman

The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 5, on two different properties in Brookneal. One search took place at a home surrounding woods, pond and field on Phelps Creek Road, while another was conducted at a home on Mattox Street in Brookneal.

Campbell County Sheriff Steve Hutcherson said, “Information had been received from a third party that led us to the area in search for Wendy Beadles Francis.”

Francis, a 36-year-old Nathalie resident, has been missing since June of last year and was last seen in Brookneal, according to authorities.

Authorities are hoping evidence found at the two search sites in Campbell County Tuesday, which has been sent to a Roanoke lab for analysis, may lead them to discover what happened to Francis.

Assisting the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office in the search were investigators from the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, Virginia State Police officers and dive team members, search and rescue team members and Alcoholic Beverage Control agents.

“Approximately 50-60 people were involved in the two searches,” Hutcherson said.

A missing person report was filed in July for Francis in Halifax County. Campbell County began assisting Halifax with the case after leads brought them to the county.

According to Hutcherson, the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office was notified in October that a location in Campbell County had been identified as the alleged site of where Francis had been residing with a friend.

“We couldn’t identify anyone putting her past this person and point,” he added.

However, since the investigation is ongoing, Hutcherson was not able to comment when asked who owned the two properties involved in Tuesday’s search.

He also declined to comment on whether authorities are pursuing any persons of interest in Francis’ disappearance.

Hutcherson said, “I’d rather not comment on that. The ultimate goal of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department is to make an arrest if we find that a crime has been committed.”

Halifax County Sheriff Fred Clark confirmed with media sources Thursday a swab for DNA had been taken from Francis’ parents on Wednesday.

Hutcherson said the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department is actively investigating this case, which may lead to other searches, but added he couldn’t say for sure at this time whether more searches will be made.

“We are still actively investigating the disappearance of Ms. Francis with the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office. Anyone with information that’s had contact between May-June 2012 or anyone with information at all, we would like to talk with them,” Hutcherson said.

Francis is a white female, 5 feet 4 inches tall and 120 pounds.

At the time she was reported missing, Francis had brown hair and blue eyes. A tattoo of a scorpion can be found on the back of her neck.

Authorities said Francis isn’t wanted on any charges and does not have any medical conditions.

Anyone with information concerning Francis’ whereabouts is asked to contact the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office at 434-332-9580 or the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 434-476-4273.

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.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Wendy Francis, please contact the Campbell County Sheriff's Office at 434-332-9580.
